NOTICE TO PHOTOGRAPHERS. 

Wit shall be much obliged to our photographic friends if they will write in 
pencil the name and description on the back of each picture, together with 
their own name and address. This notice Is rendered necessary from the fact 
that so m«ny photographs are sent to us from our friends throughout the 
country without one word of explanatory matter, they giving us credit for being 
m rapport with everything that transpires or exists in all parts of the United 
States. The columns of our paper prove that wo are up to the times In almost 
everything which occurs of public importance throughout the world, still we 
are not to ubiquitous but that something may occur beyond the circuit of our 
far-reaching information. To save labor and insure accuracy, descriptions and 
names (as above lodlcated) should, in alt casts, accompany photographic 
pictures or sketches, 



IMPORTANT NOTICE 

To Officers and others Attached to the Armies 
of the Federal and the Confederate States. 

I shall be happy to receive from Officers and others 
attached to either Army, sketches of important events 
and striking incidents which may occur dining the 
impending struggle which seems to threaten the 
country, For such sketches, forwarded promptly, I 
will pay liberally. 

My corps of Artists is unequalled in the country, 
and correspondents can depend upon their sketches, 
however rough, being produced in the finest style of 
art. 

Any gentleman connected with either Army who 
will forward us a small sketch, as a specimen of his 
ability as a draughtsman, will receive, gratuitously, 
"Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper," for the coming 
year. 

Sketches ol unusual interest will be most liberally 
paid for. 

Special attention is requested to this notice.

EDITORIAL GLANCES AT MEN AND THINGS. 

A Southern Paper says that a county of Chicasaw, Miss., has a regu- 
larly officered and drilled company of young ladies, who have pledged them- 
selves, in the event that the iren are called into service, to protect their homes 
und families during their absence, and see that the farms are properly culti- 
vated, and full crops raised not only ."or the support of the county, but of the. 
army of Mississippi. The Day Book suggests that these CUieasaw beauties 
should be sent against the Seventh Regiment of New York, since tho well- 
known gallantry of this favorite corps would naturally induce them to present 
arms to It. Another paper — which even these troubled times jcar not tutor into 
serlouscoss — inclines to U13 belief that they would bo better employed la rais- 
ing and drilling Lifantry. At all events, this regiment of the Hisses 0." Missis- 
sippi would be Invaluable in a Nursery of soldiers. These episodes resemble 
the silver lining of that terrible cloud now passing over us, but still they are 
hardly subjects for humor. 

In Times like these levity is misplaced, but who can refuse to laugh 
a*, suoh Roman T.-lbnuo literaturo as this ? It'ls, of course, in an article upon 
tho (treat subject of the day : 

" Would Leonidas have given up Sumpter ? No, by Hercules I Fabius Max- 
imus Cunctator delayed, but with arms in his hands, his whole force on foot, 
and his position clearly defined." 



THE MONSTER MEETING IN UNION SQUARE! 

Two Hundred Thousand People Dome 
Out at the Call. 



THE VOICE OF NEW. YORK FOR THE UNION! 



The Government to bo Supported at AU Eisks I 



Xlver lias the great hAirt of our beloved Republic beat with so 
full and deep a pulse as it did on the 20th of April, for on that 
day the citizens of the Metropolis of the United States were called 
upon to show their fealty to a Constitution, which was inaugu- 
rated in a seven years' baptism of heroic suffering unparalleled in 
the History of Man, and nobly did that great heart beat — nobly 
and grandly did the millions respond as orie man to the challenge 
From daybreak the countenance of our citizens had a serious- 
ness quite unusual, and the silent and continuous closing of the 
stores, the spontaneous tramp of thousands to one given spot, 
and the multitudinous display of the National Flag, gave evi- 
dence that for once the nation was aroused to a sense of its re- 
sponsibility and peril. Man, woman and child seemed alike 
stirred by one instinct. Sectional differences were swallowed up 



in one grand maelstrom — Patriotism . Long before the hour named 
for the commencement of the proceedings, which was three 
o'clock, thousands were pouring from every thoroughfare to the 
one grand centre, Union Square, and at that time there would 
not have^been less than a hundred and fifty thousand men 
assembled in Union Square and its adjacencies to. give their sup- 
port to the. Constitution. 

Long before this hour Major Anderson had been escorted to 
the Everett House, where he was received by the General Com- 
mittee, and soon after the gallant defender of Fort Sumpter, 
accompanied by the Committee, made his appearance on the prin- 
cipal stand, where he was greeted with the utmost enthusiasm. 
The business of the meeting commenced with a short address by 
the Rev. Mr. Spring of the Old Brick Church, which he closed 
by an appropriate prayer, the whole mighty mass responding 
Amen. 

When this ceremony was completed the President, Hon. John 
A. Dix, on taking tho chair alluded to the honor conferred to 
him, and made a short but effective spsech, urging the support of 
the Union. Mr. McMurdo then read the resolutions pledging the 
meeting to sustain the Government, and urging the appointment 
of a Committee of Twenty-five Citizens to represent the city in 
the collection of funds, and the transaction of business in aid of 
the Government. 

The Hon. D. A. Dickenson then came forward, and made a 
stirring appeal to the patriotism of the State. This noble old 
Democrat was received with a hearty welcome. 

Senator Baker, of Oregon, next addressed the meeting in a 
speech of similar sentiments, ard was foUowed by the Hon. R. 
J. Walker. A patriotic letter was then read from Archbishop 
Hughes, strong in its attachment to the Union. 

The Hop . Fernando Wood also made one of his emphatic 
speeches, which was much applauded. 

The meeting was then addressed by Gov. Hunt, Mr. Evarts, 
Cabel Lyon, Hiram Ketchum, Gov. Hamilton Fish, John Coch- 
rane, Mr. Raymond of the Time:, Mr. O'Gorman, Mr. Havemeyer, 
Royal Phelp-, Senator Spinok, W. J. Fuller and others. 

Their speeches all breathed one sentiment, and showed a deep 
seated attachment to the Republic, which drew forth long and 
loud responses of applause. 

Among the gratifying circumstances attending this grand de- 
monstration, we may mention that not a single act of disorder 
occurred in this vast multitude — a convincing proof that a peo- 
ple can govern themselves. 



ARRIVAL OF MAJOR ANDERSON AND 

HIS COMMA D IN NEW YORK. 

The arrival of Major Anderson and his gaUant command on 
Thursday, the 18th, aroused the eenerous enthusiasm of our 
people, and large crowds were waiting at the foot of Canal street 
and at the Battery in the expectation that he would land at one 
of those places. The Baltic, which brought the garrison of Fort 
Sumpter from Charleston, arrived off Sandy Hook at twelve M. 
The Bavaria, from Hamburg, preceded the Baltic by a few mo- 
ments, and this steamer, as well as all the craft in the bay and 
the houses along the shore, were decked with flags in honor of 
Major Anderson's arrival. 

As the steamer came slowly up the harbor, her black hull 
relieved against the bight waters, she was saluted by guns from 
the forts, from tho shore, and by the ringing of beUs and waving 
of flags, which were returned by the Baltic waving her ensign 
and firing her cannon. 

As soon as it was ascertained beyond a doubt that 

Major Anderson was on Board, 

the excitement became intense. The Major, dressed in uniform, 
wrapped in his military overcoat, and looking careworn and 
fatigued, stood upon the wheel-house and returned the saluta- 
tions of the people. The men who fought at Sumpter were 
distinguished by being in the full uniform of the United States, 
and were drawn up on the quarterdeck. 

The little steam ferryboat belonging to Governor's Island soon 
came alongside the Baltic and received Major' Anderson and his 
party. As she steamed itp the bay the greatest enthusiasm was 
exhibited, and the landing at theT5att^ry was a noble and well 
deserved ova.Ion. Major Anderson and his officers stepped at 
once into carriages and drovo"to the Brevoort House. Here 
another ovation awaited him. Thousands had collected round 
the hotel and in the neighborhood to get a glimpse of the hero 
of the day and for all time. In answer to their shouts he bowed 
frequently, and se?med deeply gratified that the people, at least, 
appreciated his devotion, loyalty and cot-rage. He seemed, how- 
ever, careworn and fatigued, and speedily retired. 

One instance of his popularity touched him deeply. He had 
scarcely got into the hotel, when the boys from Ward School 
No. 35, to the nvnbor of about five hundred, assembled on tho 
sidewalks in front of tho hotel and commenced cheering for the 
Union and Major Anderson. The gallant Major was induced to 
show himself to the youngsters, and upon his appearance at the 
door of the hotel a deafening cheer arose from the boys, and also 
from a large number of persons assembled in the vicinity of tb.e 
hotel. 

If a justification of Major Anderson', conduct were needed, 
it will be found in his simple, clear, straightforward dispatch to 
tho Government, which wo give below. 

MAJOR ANDERSONS DESPATCH TO THE WAR 
DEPARTMENT. 

Steamship Baltic, off Sandy Hook 
April 18, 1861. 
The Hon. S. Cameron, Secretary of War, Washington, D. 

Sir— Having defended Fort Sumpter for thirty-four hours, 
until the quarters were entirely burned, the main gates destroyed 
by fire, the gorge wall seriously injured, the magazine sur- 
rounded by flames, and its door closed from the effects of the 
heat, four barrels and three cartridges of powder only being avail- 
able, and no provisions but pork remaining, I accepted terms cf 
evacuation offered by General Beauregard, being the same 
offered by him on the 11th ihst., prior to the commencement of 
hostiUties, and marched out of the fort Sunday afternoon, the 
14th inst., with colors flying and drums beating, bringing away 
company and private property, and saluting my flag with fifty 
guns. 

ROBERT ANDERSON; Major, First Artillery. 



The State of the Nation. 

As sorrowful historians of what is passing around us, we briefly 
glance at the present aspect of affairs. Comme"nts upon so great 



a calamity are useless, and almost impertinent, and we therefor 
confine ourselves to the facts. 

While the North seems determined to support the Unity of the 
Republic, the South are equaUy earnest in their determination to 
protect what they consider their Htate Rights, and until a calmer 
spirit prevails in both parties we fear it is hopeless to expect a 
satisfactory settlement of the question now at issue. 

At Montgomery, the Governmental seat of the Confederated 
States, great activity prevails to put themselves into an imposing 
attitude. The Southern journals proclaim that their entire loan 
of fifteen millions has been taken ; and in reply to Presiden 
Lincoln's demand for seventy-five thousand troops, Jefferson 
Davis had issued a requisition for double that number. He has also 
published a Proclamation authorizing Privateering, a step which 
is calculated to bring him in collision with both France and 
England. 

In New Orleans the same excitement reigns, and it is currently 
reported that several privateers are being got ready. Into New 
Orleans the Star of the West has been taken as a prize — having 
aoen captured by the Secessionists. She had on board a quan- 
ti;y of provisions belonging to the Federal Government. 

Charleston remains in the same excited state, and has above 
ten thousand men in arms all ready for action. General Beaure- 
gard has gone to Pensacola, so it is reported, to take command of 
the Southern army, which, it is said, was about to attempt the 
reduction of Fort Pickens. The telegraphic wires being under 
the control of the South, there have been no communications for 
some days. 

The latest events in this great movement of the age are the 
secession of Virginia and tho equivocal attitude of Maryland, a 
State hitherto supposed to be strong for the Union. The recent 
attack upon the Sixth Regiment of Massachusetts, and the de- 
struction of the bridges, by which railroad communication with 
t.ie Noitli is suspended, undoubtedly implies that the Union men 
have lost the control of the State. The Federal Government has 
taksn possession of the Baltimore Railroad, and Secretary Came- 
ron has threatened to bombard Baltimore if tho bridges were not 
restored. 

In Washington the greatest suspense exists, for its contiguity 
to Virginia renders it liable at any time to an attack from the 
Secessionists. General Scott has now concentrated around the 
capital nearly ten thousand reliable men, and before a week has 
elapsed three times that number will be gathered there. 

Pennsylvania has taken up the war spirit with great alacrity, 
and Philadelphia, like New York, more resembles a camp than a 
commercial city. Everywhere is heard the tiamp of armed men. 
Of New York it is useless to speak, since a full account of its 
feeling will be found in another column. It is supposed that at 
the present minute there are sixty thousand men in arms prepar- 
ing to defend the Union. 

The Northern States of Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont, Rhode 
Island and Connecticut are equally alert, allanimated by the one 
great feeling of attachment to the Union. 



THE WAR FEELING IN THE NORTH.

PERSONAL. 

Edward Everett has come out in favor of the Union. 

The juries in Cincinnati seem to be very severe in their verdicts upon vio- 
lent ladies. Mrs. Mary Ann Lovct waslnt=]y fined $10,000 for tl rowini: vitriol 
upnn a lady's dress and person. I'. was proved (hat tho vi riol went upon tho 
lady's faco, and considerably damaged her beauty. 

Ju?ge Naar, of tho True American, a Trenton paper,' was called upon by a 
lively gathering of peope, who demanded that he should hoist tho Stars and 
Stripes. Tho Judge came forward, and made i o bumorf us a speech that tho 
mob dispersed, forgetting what they cam : about. S : nce Orpheus led the trees 
to a dance there has been nothing like it. 

Lieutenant Henry, of tbe Ninth Regiment, resigned his commission on Iho 
ground that, being a South Carolinian, ho would not fight against his native 
Stale. 

The papers— that is to ?ay,tVo greenest of them— are very Fevere upon a" 
young man who writes vor.es ur dor tho nom tie plvme of Owen Mo eiiith. Ha 
is ason of Bulwer. the novo 1st. Tbe great cnm« charged against him is that, 
ln.-ta id of being Otero Meredith, he Is cwng Georpe Sand, fir his "Lucille" Is 
stolen verbatim et li'.era'im (without the lag of lbyme) from Ma'amo Dude- 
vant's (l Lavinia," a novel published seine twenty years ago. 

Charles Dickens, alias " Boz," has got into another squabble wlih on old 
friend. It appears when he was iu difll.'iihies he gave a bond lo a merchant 
for £500, to bo paid out of his "American Notes." Ihe interest has never 
been paid, and the principal Las never been applied for ; but ihe death of tho 
elder brother, wbo lout tho money, th'ew ihe note huo the executors' hands, 
and the creator of Cheery bio Brothers says ho vaid (be note twelve jeats ago. 
Tho case will come before a legal tribunal, and u is more than probable thnt 
Mrs. Dickens will be subpoenaed to prove that five years ago her hush end, i OW 
separaied from her, acknowledged lo her that the note had not bren p Id. We 
undei stand that by a recent law a wife's lest moliy can bo received agelcst her 
husband. If so, it is an error, and an attack upon ibat so emn fiction that "the 
twain are ono flesh." How would the conflicting evidence of Lbang aud Eog, 
the S'amese Twins, be received i 

The lTlnce Imperial walked into tbe Fmperor's study one fine morning, at-

THE WAR FEELING IN THE SOUTH. 

The secession of Virgiuli has added fuel to the Are, and the enthusla-m of tho 
South is all ablaze. Tho excitement is wild. Railway trains are loadoa wilh 
soldiers, arms and ammunition. Northerners aro hastening homo. The boiler 
seems very general thit Colonel B;n McCulloch is «ven now on his way lo sur.' 
prise and [capture Washington. There is also a strong belief that there is a 
powerful dlsuolcn party in the North, which will by Its action paralyse all the 
aggressive operations of tbo Federal Government. 

Tho hatbor of Mobile is being put into a state ol thorough defence and made 
ready for any emergency. 

Th force ut VVn-aola under General Bragg is assuming a strong and threat 
eniug appearance, and addliional volunleers aro pouring in every day to swell 
Ihe number. The struggle at Pensacola, when it once begins, will be loDg and 
bloody. Fort Pickens, it is said, has been reinforced, and has now eight hun- 
dred men wilhlu lis walls and pien y of provisions. Several vessels ol war aro 
also In tho harbor ready to lend assistance to the defence. Tho troops under 
General Bragg aro full of enthusiasm, and arc eager to be led on to the attack. 

It is confidently expected that Norlh Carolina will immediately secede from 
the Union. Six iweu'y-p unders from Charleston for Fori. Micon have reached 
Wilmington. Troops are pouring into that and ohcr forts ; the military s, irit 
predominates over every other lestimei t. Not only vast supplies of men 
aro springing up everywhere, but Iho smows ol war— money, is flowing In 
freely. It is stated that at Montgomery, Alahama, tho demand for iha loan of 
the Confederate States was so great that President i avis has determined to offer 
the whole $15,000,000. The amount subscribed already exceeds $15.000000. 
The books were closed, and the smaller turns bavo preleronco over tho larger 
ones. 

In Augusta, Georgia, a Rhode Islander, and an old citizen of that place, 
issued an order to uuiforni and equip, at his own cxpenso, a company of eighty 
volunteers for tho war. Tho comp .ny has been organised and will be ready to 
march iu ten days. 

On Wednesday, 17th Inst., shortly bc'ore ihe steamer Yorktbwn was lo have 
sailed loe New york, Governor Leicher ordered Company F., Captain Gary, of 
the First Regiment of Volunteers, to take possession of lhat vessel, lor tho pur- 
t.osa of taking troops down to Norfolk. About four p.m. a trumpeter went down 
Main street calling the citizens to arms, anu shortly afterward men, wilh 
muskets and whatever ether equipments they could get hold of, were rush- 
log down town toward Rockets, the lower part of tho city. An hour afterward 
nearly all returned, a squad of men having bien placed on guard to detain 
the Btcaraer. She was to have sailed ou Thursday morning with troops for 
Norfok.

OUR WEEKLY GOSSIP. 

National Academy of Design. 

No. 108. " Ladies at Piano," A. Lawme. We can have bnt 
little respect for the juJgmf nt of a Committee wbo would accept 
such a picture for the purpose of exhibiting it. It lacks every 
element of a good picture. Neither in coloring, drawing nor senti- 
ment is it fit to be hung'on tbe walls of tbe Academy. The figures 
are affected and unnatural, and they are just fitted io play upon a 
piano which cannot exceed In compass two octaves and a half. It 
is really poor trash, and so we pass it by. 

No. 21, " Sketches from Life," Aktutr Lumley. Ske'ches 
dashed in with a free hand, well drawn, spirited and full of charac- 
ter, Mr. Lumley giveB evidence of deciJed ability. 

No. 22, "Scene from Midsummer Night's Dream," Alfred 
Fkedebicks. This young artist has evidently taken Gilbert for his 
model. He has studied him loviDgly.and has acquired his manner 
so olosely as to lay him open in some degree to a charge of imita- 
tion. The same qualntness of treatment, the same breadth of cha 
racter and humor can be traced in this picture, but it is by no means 
a servile imitation. The scene is where the elfish ppirit Puck ] lays 
Ida pranks upon the clowni-h players. He is deluding them thr, ugh 
bog and brake by the light of the Will-oMlte-Wisp, which gleams 
from an inverted lily in his hands. This effect is achieved with great 
success. The figure of Pnck is wildly elfish in its character, and is 
sketched with infinite spirit. Ihe other figures are all broadly hu. 
morons and quaintly conceived. The artist has caught tho 5-liako- 
apearean spirit of the scene, displaying a vivid imagination, and for 
a water color drawing it lp not only singularly striking, but its 
strergth of effect is quite remarkable. 

No. 123, " Sunset in the English Channel," M. F. II Di: Uaah 
This picture is particularly admirable for the tone which pet varies 
it. The sunset is strcng in color, but without warm'h, a character- 
istic which will be recognized as peculiar to tho climate ol Eog- 
land. The ships are. carefully and boluly drown, and the cold glare 
upon the waves is skilfully managed. The water, finely painted, is 
full of motion, and there is life and action iu the scene, which is a 
rare merit. It is ono of the few good matir.es in this year's exhibi- 
tion. 

No. 147, " The Farmyard," W. HEr-BURN. The noticeable points in 
this picture are its poor coloring, and fowls which nilnhc be anything 
else bat for their mere form, and a very brazen milkmaid leaning 
in most familiar manner against an exceedingly dis'ipatcd-looking 
cow. 

No. 121, "Noonday Fog," James A. Futdaji. A well conceived 
and well executed effect. The fog Is visibly creeping over and ob- 
scuring the features of tho land-cape. Its gradations from the 
slightest film to the completest obscuration are managed with 
ruirked ability. 

No. 418, " Breaking Away," Joun A.Howb. In this picture we 
have a new phase ol Mr. Hows' really lino tali nt. We- find in all he 
does a high-toned feeling for art, a sentiment which springs from 
an ardent love for and an earnest study of Nature iu her solitudes, 
and an imagination which is at once graceful, fanciful and pictu 
rcsque. In his landscapes, even when devoid of the presence of 
animal life, there is an indescribable suntiniont, as though some 
lovmg eye wss gazing on and drinking their rich, voluptuous 
beauty — as though such exquisije harmony of iorm and color could 
not exist without the presence of human love and sympathy. 

The title of the picture, " Breaking Away," indicates its principal 
effect. A fog has Bhrouded the water, hut the rays of the rising 
sun arc gradually dissipating its strength, and it is breaking away 
in the east and slowly lifting from the surface of the water, reveal- 
ing the distant headland. This portion of the picture is bandied 
with the touch of a master. The casual observer might pass it by 
because it is devoid of marked contrasts, but the ciitical observer 
will recognize aud appreciate its admirable fidelity to nature. Tbe 
life in the picture is represented by a duck on the wing, which is bo 
admirably diawn, especially in the foreshortening of the rear wing 
and painted tkat one might well suppose Mr. Hows had maeie 
aquatic buds his Bpecial Btiidy. A second deck floiving quietly ou 
the watc in the midst of the lily pads is equally well piinted. The 
huge tiee stump in lie iamed'ato foreground is certainly unsightly 
however true it may be in nature. As n whole, however, it is one 
of the few remarka-.le pictures in the exhibi'i di.and (till justly ad. 
to the growing repuation of Mr. John A. Hows.

" Speak well of the dead," is an old and honored maxim, but In

Dr. Angus - us K. Gardner, himself an eminent and bWily rosprcloil

to his heart as to bis literary reputation It should be widely cir- 
culated, for tbe more the world knows of its good and great men, 
the better it will be for its onward progress. We should like ti 
quote the whole of the eulogy, but must content ourselves with oaet 
eloquent extract from bis introductory nmaiks. Dr. Gardner laid : 

" The speaker of today for years gazed from afar upon tbe rug:' d 
lineaments of this hoar apostle of medicine ; later was warmed in" > 
new life by the radisnt iraj s ins ever playing around his gpi.ial

Testimonial to Madame Anna Bishop. 

The proposed testimonial to this charming and talented artltt 
took plice at the Academy of Mu-ic on Friday evening. Too dale 
was unfortunate, as the Seventh Regiment departed. the same tf cr- 
noon. and Ihe combined excitement of war aud politics seem-d ti 
exclude hII idea of amu=ements. There was quite a large number of 
people present, and we observed many e.f^our wealthiest famLisi 
present. We understand that a grtat many tickets were di.-posed

CIIAlTEIt VI. 

Whev Emile c.smo into the room she walked tiptoe round the bed,

"Not asleep. Emile," she replied ;" but I cannot talk. Leave 
me to tny thoughts." 

Am Hey so pleasing, then?" said Emile. "Say if they are of 
i, of my brother. Ah, your eyelashes are wet with tears!" and 
hue tinned ber (ace townids herself. " Jules has told ne oil, Ln 
elile ; be is urhai py ns yourself; and why should this be ? Alter 
a I, there was nothing base and dishonorable in his proposal ; and I, 
hh jour friend, as your sister, have come wi'h a heart, brim lull of 
hfiVction and best wishes for your happiness, »o add my entreaties 
to bis, that you will listen to his ardent, love. Nay, do not turn from 
irm, l'ir you rrmst bear what I will tell you. Af er all, dear Lucille, a 
private marriage is not such a very formidable affair. His a thou- 
s.itol timps better linn sacrificing tbe happiness of two loving 
I j arts; for if my mother's consent is waited for, then will you 
Pi ver be united 'o JuVb ; for, like most persons of weak mind, Bhe 
is obdurate where there is a loophole to creep out at ; but when 
Uioga ate irremediably fettled, she submits with tbe best grace In 
<h i world, and is kind and oiten generous ; and she has her best re- 
i urdii so exclusively fixed on Jules that ber forgiveness will easily 
1 e obtained.'' 

" If her forgiveness would be so readily gained, whv not try fcr 
ri nseiit, ?" said Lucille. "My father will never stand at the altar 
and cive me to the son against the mother's wish." 

" \'i ur father, dearest." said Emile ; " you do not fear his .-nger, 
I ire. He is bo kiid and lenient, so sensible and just, that " 

'• Oat Is why I ca not deceive him," interrupted Lucille. "He 
ild forgive me, I snow, for tbe act, but. I could not forgive my- 
ie.:f. Emile, your reasoning is bad. Leave me, I entreat, to my 
<.-• M ri flections." 

Turning abruptly away, Lucille remained quiet to all Emlle's elo- 
V uos ; lhongh much she spoke fund reciprocal sentiments in ber 

• .-Mi reasonings, and though she said, with a gush of tears, which 

denied the assertion, " 1 am firm in my resolution rot to de- 
prive rnv father, and shall rejoice, rb, bow heartily, when D'Almaine 
Kiuile depart, that. 1 may be myself again." But there was a 
m ber heart, a trenib'irg through b«r frame, as a presentiment 
r»-ted on her mind that 1 applross would not so easily be regained. 
iln< a blight, was open It, that, would cause tbe blessings she had 
lit! trto delighted In to wither in the sunlight of ber youth. Yes, 
!,■ ci le at ot ie bad launched upon the world ; she already tasted its 
;«ii trneba ; for the first time she wished to think unmolested, te 
dive into tbe depth of her own heart, that she rrigbt loo's into 
t.tbfis. The charm of childhood had vanished— she was a woman 
tie) ending on her own responsibilities, with thoughts and hopes she 
ft I- tto nicred to trust to any hut her own beepirg.

This restraint en ber words and actiens was ended by the an- 

n i ncement of D'Almtilne that the Chambers I aving met. be shculd

" 1 think, if Emile is iu readiness, to be en the road to Paris by

" To morrow !" .she responded, with a start, and in a voice evi-

let. tbe morning breeze ela=e away those ill-timed tears, and the 
bright, sun warm that chilled little heart of yours." 

As Emile spok", the bright snn disappeared behind a lurking 
cloud, and gave ihe room, ihat led been lighted up by its beams, a 
cold, cheerless aspect. Lucille looked around and shuddered. 

" Wheie i< tber brightness now ?" she said. " G"ne,to warn me of 
my fate ! Emile, does.it not speak plainly that Heaven approves 
not of this marriige, si'ent and secret?" 

"This U weakness unworthy of a child, Lucille. When did 
Heaven ever disapprove of a virtuous union ? Leave your bed and 
be yourself ; there never was a bride yet that rose on her bridal 
morn wholly tincontaniina*ed by an undefined fear. And behold, 
the sun, your oracle, has again burst fonh with all its Bplendor. 
Come, dearest, haste, Jules, is calling from beneath. Let a smile 
dispel that gloom upon your brow, think only of tbe happy days to 
come ; give all dark prophetic thoughts to the wind, and let me, as 
your bridesmaid, pieside at your adorning for tbe altar." 
.Emile a cheerful tones in adegree dissipated the nervous timidity 
cf Lucille. She aro<e and commenced dressing in silence, but as 
she was throwing a dark silk dress over her, Emile arrested her. 

" Not that, not that," she said. " it looks as gloomy as your cwn 
prophetic mind, and will infect Jules with it, if his own pleasurable 
sensations do not ovcrpower.it, with its own sombre color. This 
light airy white diess must be the one, and though no eatin bow« 
aoorn it, and no wreath of orange blossom rests among y v i u 
curls, you will be a bride no man need be ashamed to »' ' • Ii uge." 

Lucille smiled faintly as her eyes furtively tested Ob .he itiiected 
figure in ber minor. 

" I am ready now," she said, lsying her hand on the handle of tbe 
door. '• I leave this room for the last lime as wholly and solely my 
father's; when I return to it I shall belong to another. Will that 
one guard me wiih the care and tenderness of the one whose loving 
authority I am throning cff." She pressed her hands silen'ly on 
her heart, then added, as she suppressed a long breath, " I must 
prove it." 

" You are late this morning, girls!" cried De Vernet, smilingly, 
observing their white dresses. "Tbe count has been fidgetty lhis 
ball hoar fur. his breakfast, while yon have been gaily decking your 
selves. Really,' ivere it not for your pale faces and rather gloomy 
looks, I should think you were going to some village wedding. But 
lhis patting seems to affect you all more than it, should do, when at 
most it will be but for a few monthB, and you can receive letters 
horn each other every day if you are not too idle to write them " 

" Yes," said P'A'maire. quickly, fearing Lucille's emotion would 
give li.-e to suspicion. " They think by far loo much of it, and to 
divert their thoughts, I have ordered my carriage in half an hour to 
take them a drive. Thiee or four hours passed in the open air this 
Rloiio'-s morning will bring back the color to their cheeks and the 
brightness to Utir eyes, and give them courage to say 'Adieu!' 
with firmness tomorrow. Come, Emile, if you preside, give us our 
coffee. 1 have been up and out since six, and the bands of my 
watch now point to nine. Have neicy on me, and be quick with 
the coffee." 

Emile had taken Lucille's place at 1he breakfast-table, believing 
she lossessed tbe no*t firmness, but her hand trembled as she 
handed the cup to De Vet net. She felt ciiminal before him, as if 
she was joining in a plot against him, and answered confusedly bis 
quest.irns. and the announcement of the carriage was a welcome 
leliif io her. 

Lucille started up, affr'gbted at the sound, declaring she felt too 
ill to go out, and clinging nervously to ber father. 

"Hi nsense ?" he er'ed. " Wra< is it causes this strange irritability 
of manner, child, so wholly unlike yoursell ! You and Emile were 
tailing all right instead of sleeping., and want, of rest has made you 
neivous ; the air will chase it away. Here, Monsieur H'Almaine, I 
jlsce ber under your care ; you will not, I am sine, take her further 
rhtn ber rsti ength will allow. Perhaps it would be as well to reduce 
your tin ee hours' drive to half its dimensions." 

D'Alrraine took her from her lather's arms,' pressed her hands, 
r nd whispered a few low tender words in ber ear ; then, throning a 
shawl over her shoulders, led her to tbe vehicle, and placing her 
ard Emile into it, jumped in himself, and waving his hand to De 
Venet, drove off. 

Ihe can- sge proceeded at rather a quick rate through tbe town 
of Marseilles and a mile aLd a half beyond it, when it branched off 
into a narrow road, and bad pri i'tcdtd near a mile in this direction, 
when iTAImaiiie, looking ironi the wicdow, exclaimed, in a tone of 
vexation, 

"Good heavens! there is Batiste! What can have brought his 
ill tirred presence sonearuB? Just, too, as we wereab' ut alighting 
— for we must leave tbe carriage here, that, the servants may merely 
thli k we are going to morning service. What shall we do, Lucille ? 
admit him to our confidence ? For see, the church is in Bight." 

"Yes, yes," she relumed ; "tell him. Batiste is our faithful 
friend. It, will be a gieat relief to me to have some one near when 
yon fire pone Ihat knows all about it." 

H'Aliuaine descended J'tom tbe cairiage without speaking, though 
evidi niiy rullied, Bnd spoke to Batiste, who listened wilhout inter- 
rupting him to the end, when be exclaimed, 

■' 1 do not like these private weddings, they often lead to unhappy 
results. Lucille has acted unwisely to deceive her lather; boll 
suppose it is too late to eiler opposition now, monsieur." 

" It is." replied D'Almaire : "(or tbe piiest now waits to perform 
the ceremony;. Be friendly, Monsieur Batiste, and keep this affair 
seciet a lew fnou'bs until I bave broken it to my mother, and all 
will be well. And he not harsh, I entreat yon, towards Luciile, who 
already suffers mnch from the restraint uponher open nature, which 
for the present is unavoidable. You will enter into this plan, 
monsieur ?" 

'■ You say the priest wai's," said Batiste, disconsolately ; " then 
my interference wtuld be useless. Befoie I could inform ber father 
tl e deed we uld be done ; 1 must recessarily become a party to it. 
Here is my hand, monsieur. I hope I am tfl'ering it to one who will 
not be the means of breaking a. tather's heart." 

" You are giving it to an honest man, monsieur," was the answer, 
in a proud tone. " 1 will return to you immediately." 

B.-iiste looked musingly after him. 

'• I believe you, Monsieur D'Almaine," he sa'd. "You have a soul 
to do what is right ; but you want eneigy, have too much pride and 
are guided by your lady mother, who is one of tbe old nobility, and 
thinks all t eneaih her own rank only worth trampling on. Toor 
Lucille! you have found it easier to gain the son's heart. The 
lnotbi r'a Favor will nut shine so readily on you. I am sorry my walk 
was taken this way ihii. morning. But here they come, the bride 
pale, and trembling as an aspen's leaf. Ah! so was Madeline on 
i r iu.irri.ige morning ; that is not always a bad omen." 

"-•d ihe other side of Lucille to the church. She looked 
' - ' neither spoke.

" Which will be ere many weeks," bo replied. " Adieu ! we must 
now sepa'ate, or the sun will set and the heavy dews fall on your 
uncovered head before you can reach home." 

Emile had said ber Iastgood-bye, and was in the carriage ; Lucille 
threw herself into Jules's arms. " Farewell!" she cried, in a broken 
voice. " Do not be long in returning ; think of the bitterness of con- 
cealment, and pity me." 

He threw his cloak round her, and hurried her towards tbe vehicle. 

" Go with ne," be wnispered, " you are mine, legally mine ; why 
should we separate? Go with me to Pariu ; there I will acknow- 
ledge you my wife, spite of the world, spite of my mother." 

She struggled to free herself, but she was already on the Bteps of 
the carriage ; there was now no wavering about her ; desperate 
with the force of her feelings she broke from him, and her voice 
was firm. 

" Leave me, Jules," she cried, " this is an outbreak of selfishness 
I did not anticipate. You would have me add cruelty to disobedience, 
have me ff rsake my father without a word, or even a look to soften 
the act. (Jo! you have yet to learn the heart of the woman you 
have given your name to, if you believe ber capable of ingratitude." 
Humbled by ber manner, more striking in one so yonng, he stood a 
mement regarding her, when drawing her towards him, he pressed 
a long ki-s on ber lips. 

" Pardon me !" he cried. " My love had hurried me on to what I 
might hereafter have regretted, bad not your discretion — so superior 
to my own, young as yoti are— prevented it. Adieu ! I cannot trust 
myself longer with you, I see your worth, and will love and vene- 
rate it." • 

He entered the carriage hurriedly, threw himself in a corner of it, 
and it was Boon in rapid motion, leaving Lucille s'anding there like 
one paralysed. Events had flitted away so rapidly that, but fur tbe 
bitterness of her feelings, she could bave tancied herself in a dream. 
Her eyes were still fixed on the retreating vehicle. Etnile's hand- 
kerchief was waving from it; she watched it till it became smaller, 
smaller, till it became a mere speck, then a clump of trees hid it 
entirely from her. and she turned Ironi the diiection, this warm, 
genialevening, cold, heartsick. 

She entered the grove and sat down on alow branch which had 
been allowed to jut out and grow unmolested from its patent tree. 
At the moment a gust of wind disturbed the calm quiet if the grove, 
blossoms unnumbered showered round her white and feathery as 
snowflakes. She started up, shaking them from her. 

" Is it mockery," she cried, "or do they sneak of the future ? I 
am coveied with these beautiful IcaveB, emblematical ol innocence 
and unity. Ah, look, look !" she continued, in a suppressed tone, 
" they are already withered ; they cover me like a winding-sheet, 
cling ro me, follow me!" she added, as they still fell upon her, 
though she beat them from her. and retreated from the grove. 

She ran several yards, assailed by a superstitious dtead,iill tbe 
smoke from the cottage chimney, rising bine and majestic, seemed 
to mingle with the clouds to assuic her of her safety. She stopped 
to recover breath ihat her faiher might not suspect her agitated 
feelings. He met her at the door. 

" 1 was just coming In pursuit of yon," he said smiling, "for you 
have protracted your parting to such a length that I was doubtful 
whether Emile and her brother, out of true love of your presence, 
had not reajy succeeded in using some art, to spirit you away." 

The thought of how near she bad been hurried from him gave her 
languid face a paler hue ; he observed it, and added, " Thank Hea- 
ven they are cff, Lucille ! You wiil now be my own again. I shall 
have some enjoyment of your society, and the roses, 1 hope, which 
the last few days bave died on ycur cheek will revive agnin. To- 
night you are sadly pale, as white as the orange blrsscnis clinging 
to your hair." - 

" Are they still there ?" she exclaimed, her old, superstitious dread 
returning, and raising her hand to ber head, she brushed them irri- 
tably away. Tney scattered about tbe table, she looked search- 
ingly at them. 

"Look, father," she cried, " they are all dead, their perfume 
gone I When'before did the orange blossom wither as it fell? Isit 
bcanse 1 bey have fallen on me that I see them thus ? ' 

DeVernet laughed. " It is emblematic of old maloism!" he cried, 
" my Lucille will never be taken from me." 

" It speiks then of blighted hope;*," she said, speaking between 
her teetb. 

" Heaven forbid !" said her father. 

He had spoken lightly before, now an uueasy pang was at hia 
heart, and he took her in his arms. 

"Dispel this silly superstition,"' he continued, "for my happineus 
and ideas are so bound up in ycu, my child, that to see you thus 
pretna'urely old and thoughtfully reflective, unmans me." 

" You shall see me all Bmiies after to-night," she said; " I will sleep 
away the gloom which parting with Emile, whom Hove very dearly, 
has occasioned. The morning Bhall make me your own LuciUe 
again."

CHAPTER VIII. 

Lucille was right. With the morning came' brighter hones ; it also 
brought a letter from Emile, wiih one enclosed from D'Almaine, 
full of kind and tender expressions, ju<a such as her own warm 
heart responded to. She wondered bow such superstitious dread 
could have found entrance for a moment there ; and her answer to 
him was cheerful and hopeful, and had it not been for ber secret, 
the thought of which engendered sensations weighty and momentous, 
because her father was notallowed to share it, she would have had 
but one regret, that of being absent, from her husband. 

Several months passed, and D'Almaine was a regular correspond- 
ent. At length his letters spoke of coming to tbe valley. Lucille's 
heart beat hurriedly against its barriers as she read the welcome 
words. " He is coming," she thought, '• to ease me < f this torturing 
suspense, to give me courage to look my father in tbe face, with 
the innocence and confidence be merits." Her spirits rose wirh the 
though', and though the bloom on her cheeks came and went, ber 
voice was more cheerful, and her tread lighter than it bad been 
since she became a wife.' 

Two days later D'Almaine's well-known step was on the gravelled 
path of the cottage garden. Lucille rose from her seat to meet, 
him ; but before she reached tbe door, he had sprung iu at the win- 
dow which opened on tbe little terrace, and she was in his arms. 
She had no words for him, though her heart wa> lull of them, and 
could only answer his impassi >ued ones, by clinging to his neck, 
and weeping on his shoulder. Howshe blessed the chance that had 
taken her lather from tbe bouBe, and prevented him witnessing this 
interview ; for she soon understood he had not come to claim and 
bear her home, but to impress up'bn her the necessity of'keeping 
their marriage, unknown to the world a few months longer. 

"And irom my father also?" said Lucille. " Surely I may tell 
him? Oh. you 1- now what it is Jules, for a child to be always with 
a iarent, and a secret hovering on her tongue that must not reach 
his ears." 

" Would it avail anything iu our cause with mymother?" returned 

D'A'maine. " No, she would condemn your father as an accessory, 

and refuse on those terms to receive you. We must proceed slowly, 

Lucille ; but not the less surely on. that account. You must, go to 

- that my mother may le^rn to love you. You will not, I hope,

The morning of D'Almaine's departure Lucille hurried to the 
fiuall wood shirting the premises, and throwing herself on the seat 
where Jules bad obtained her unwilling consent to their union, was 
indulging freely in the thoughts it had given birth to, when they 
were interrupted by the rustling of the underwood near her. She 
look up — Batiste was before her. 

'•Pardon my intrusion, madame," he said, coming towards her, 
" but a secret always Fits heavily on the mind of Jacques Batiste. 
The count, I hope, has given permission for its being divulged?" 

" No," she replied, confusedly, " there is necessity for longer con- 
cealment. A few months, perhaps only weeks ; I cannot state, 
llonr-leur Batiste, the exact time, but as anxiously as yourself I trust 
this reserve will soon pass away." 

"I trust so," said Jacques ; "for I do not seem like an honest man 

wheu before M. de Vernet with the knowledge of his daughter's 

marriage on my conscience— a knowledge so studiously kept from 

himself. What, permit <me to ask, madame, prevents the count 

■ acknowledging it?" 

" I cannot enter into particulars now," she replied, " but they are 
grounded, I feel convinced, on justice and honor ; therefore you will 
stand our friend a little longer, and not make my father unhappy 
by a premature disclosure which may mar the concerted plans cf 
Monsieur D'AImnine, and cause much unhappiness to myself pro- 
bably." 

" Heaven forbid I should add to your discomfort," said Batiste ; 
" for I have seen plaiuly that you have never been yourself since — 
since the morning you overtook me near the church of St. Mark. I 
do not like unnecessary delays, but hope it is all right with the 
count, that he does not already regret that morning's work. There, 
do not look so pale and woe-begone. I think and hope with yon it 
is all right— that delay may be expedient ; but after all the straight 
road is the easiest. If it is rugeed we know its termination, and 
there's no deception about it. There, you are looking paler than 
ever. Cheer up! We will both of us look on the sunny side of 
objects ; and whatever may turn up, whether you need him or not, 
believe that Jacques Batiste will ever stand foremost yours, and 
your father's firmest friend." 

"I know it, I know it!" she uttered, subduing her emotion. "Bat 
what have I to fear !— surely not my husband's truth or honor ! 
No, no ; I am only unhappy because there is broken faith between 
my lather and myself." 

" Ah, it was wilful!" he replied with a sigh. " From such a father, 
what had you to fear? Even now, I would break through the 
restraint impor ed on me and tell him all." 

"Not yet, not, yet!" she returned hurriedly. "A higher duty 
than that to my father sways over me. Batiste. I will submit to it- 
it will not be for long. Monsieur D'Almaine is noble and generous, 
and in a few weeks will release you from the silence that weighs bo 
heavily upon you." 

"I wish it. madame," said Batiste; "not for myself alone, but 
for you, whom it afflicts and concerns infinitely more. I will be 
Ei'ent henceforth, until you permit me to speak.- But believe and 
command my friendship whenever you require it." 

'■ Thanks — thanks I" was her reply ; but he had hurriedly quitted 
her while speaking, and her words fell on the air, and were lost 
before they could reach him. 

****** 

A few weeks after, a letter addressed to Be Vernet from Madame 
B'Alrnaine, gave surprise, not unmixedwithpleasure.to Hie inmates 
of the cottage. Its contents were merely the following.: 

" Madame B'Almaine's sincere friendship to Monsieur Be Vernet, 
and entreats bim to spare his daughter a few weeks to see the won- 
ders of Puis ; he may rest, assured that the greatest care will bo 
taken of her. Madame B'Alrnaine will send a confidential femala 
attendant to guard her during the journey ; and her son and 
daughter, who arc desirous for her society, will meet her the second 
stage from the capital Tilth the family carriage. United commen- 
dations from the family circle of Madame B'Alrnaine to Monsieur 
and Mademoiselle Be Vernet. with hopes that an early day wi)l-*?e 
named when her visitor may be expected." 

There was a'so a letter Trom Emile, with an enclosure from Jules 
to Lucille. B'Almaine's contained but the following few words :— 

" Dearest Lucille— Come to Paris ; I am all impatience to see 
you, end have much to say. My mother is still in ignorance of our 
alliance; but when yon are with us, and she knows you, we shall 
have ample opportunity of revealing. Yonrs, devotedly, 

Jules." 

Lucille read end re-read this short epistle, with half angry feelings 
against the writer, that he should wish her to appear before his 
mother under a name and character she had no longer any right to; 
her jtatnre revolted at the duplicity of the proceeding, and her first 
impulse was to war against his wish and remain where she was. 

Be Vernet would not listen to Lucille's excuses. He had some 
time felt alarmed by her less of the animated spirits that had mode 
her so afraciive, arid at the fleeting color which seldom now rested 
on her cheeks. He thought she wanted change of scene and air, 
aud was grateful that the countess's invitation would enable her to 
have both. Accordingly, an eprly day was fixed for her departure. 
With a heavy heart sbe tore herself from her fatber's arms, and 
aeppiDg into the carriage the matronly person sent by Madame 
JJ Almaine followed, who soon, by her conversation and her anec- 
dotes, and the praises of the family she had served thirty years, 
succeeded in diverting her attention frcnrtl e present to the future. 

It was the afternoon of the second day wlieu they arrived at the 
place of meeting mentioned by the countess. As the tired horses 
entered the courtynul of the inn, Lucille heard a joyful exclamation ; 
she looked from the window; Jules and Emile, with smiling, wel- 
come faces, were already there. The coach door was opened hastily, 
?"'!i bef o re she was well aware of it, she was in the latter's arms ; 
B Almaine took hrr frcm them, and almost bore her into the hotel, 
where, unobserved, he could shower upon her the iervor of his 
affection. 

•' We will dine here," said B'Alrnaine, ! ' and at least have a few 
hoars' nninteirupted pleasure and conversation before you are 
introduced to my mother, who, like a child in expectation of a new 
toy, is longing to show you to the wond she lives in, and the only 
one she knows." 

Lucille readily assented, glad, of any excuse to postpone a meet- 
ing with a person who, from the recollections of her childhood, was 
neither amiable nor conciliating. 

(lb. be continued.) 



DESTRUCTION OF TH£ HARPER'S FERRY ARSENAL 
BY THE FEDERAL TROOPS. 

On Thursday, the 18th of April, this far-famod Arsenal was de- 
stroyed by command of the United States Government. After 
the secession of Virginia it was evident that an attempt would 
be made to seize this military station, since the small force of 
Federal troops who held it rendered any attempt to hold it per- 
fectly impossible. This became all the more apparent, since the 
sentiments of Colonel Barbour, the late Superintendent, were 
welliknown to be strongly in favor of Secession; indeed, he had 
already demanded that his resignation should be accepted by the 
Federal Government. 

Lieutenant Jones and a small company not exceeding fifty 
men were in posses-ion, and hearing that a body of Virginians 
numbering fc ; x hundred men were approaching by the Win- 
chester road, for the purpose of seizing the Arsenal, he immedi- 
a £ l i SaVe orclc ' 1 ' 3 to Prepare for its destruction, so that they 
should only possess a mass of ruins. For that purpose he 
r £ US £ .P^ es of powder to be put into a quantity of straw in all 
the buildings, and then quietly awaited the intelligence which a 
picket guard he had despatched .to watch should bring. It 
soon returned with the news that the Virginians were advancing, 
and in a minute the garrison set fire to the outhouses, carpenter's 
shop and the adjacent buildings. The gallant band, with Lieu- 
tenant JtoeS at their head, then commenced their retreat from 
the conflagration. The citizens of Harper's Ferry, who were 
evidently in league with the advancing party, were instantly in 
arms, and pursued the Federal troops, firing on them as they re- 
treated. Two were killed, and two deserted. The rest reached 
Hagerstown, having marched all night. Hissing the railroad 
train at lin^erstown, they took possession of some stages, and 
.arrived the next morning at Chumbersburg, —»■—•» *>~" were 



hospitably entertained by the citizens, who loudly applauded 
their conduct. 

Lieutenant Jones is a son of the late Adjutant-General Jones, 
U. S. A. He says as the Federal troops rushed across the Poto- 
mac bridge, at Harper's Ferry, the people rushed into the Arsenal. 
He believes that large numbers perished by the explosion. Re- 
peated explosions occurred, ancl he saw a light burning in the 
buildings for many miles. 



THE MASSACHUSETTS TROOPS EN ROUTE FOR 
WASHINGTON. 

New York was a scene of unexampled excitement on Thursday, 
the 18th of April, for on that day the Sixth Regiment of Massa- 
chusetts Militia arrived in our city, on their vvay to defend the 
Federal Capital. To receive them with due honor, Colonel Le 
Gal the Commander of the Lafayette regiment, marched up to 
the New Haven depot, Twenty-seventh street, but owing to some 
mistake, they were informed they would not arrive for some 
hours. They consequently marched back to their Armory. 
About half-past five in the morning the cars came bearing the 
gallant Bay Slate regiment. By this time an immense throng 
had collected, who gave their visitors a most hearty reception. 
The biave fellows then left the cars, marched down Twenty- 
seventh street to Fifth avenue, thence to Broadway, through 
Union square, and then to the Metropolitan Hotel, where four 
companies took breakfast. Another detachment went to the St. 
Nicholas, and the remainder repaired* to the Astor House. The 
streets were lined with a dense crowd, which cheered them 
vociferously. 

At half-past eleven o'clock the battalions from the Metropolitan 
and the St. Nicholas took up their line of march for the Jersey 
City Ferry, and on arriving at the Astor House were joined by 
their comrades, and the whole regiment marched to the foot of 
Cortlandt street, followed by a dense mass of people, who greeted 
on the way with uninterrupted cheers. They were transported 
to Jersey City on the new ferryboat John P. Jackson, and were 
met at the dock by Mayor Van Vorst, of Jersey City, Chief of 
Police Marinus, and Sheriff Francis, ancl by an immense crowd 
of Jersey men and women, who gave them a welcome not less 
warm than that they had receiyed in this city. Eighteen cars 
were ready for their reception, in which they embarked as soon 
as practicable, and at a few minutes past one o'clock the train 
started for Philadelphia. A hardier-looking or better traincel 
regiment of militia has never visited this city. The following is 
a list of the companies, with their officers, number of men in each, 
and where from :

Total 738 

In addition, there are members who have either previously left 
or are yet to arrive, the full complement of the regiment being 
ejght hundred men. They arrived at. Philadelphia about eight 
o'clock, and took supper at the Continental and Girard. Their 
reception in Philadelphia was equally enthusiastic with that of 
New York. 



ATTACK UPON THE SIXTH REGIMENT OF 
.•las.athnsrtls Volunteers \>y tkc People of Baltimore. 

At noon on the 19th instant the city was startled by a telegram 
stating that the Baltimorcans hael disputed the passage jot the 
regiment, and that a bloody fight had taken place, resulting in a 
considerable loss of life. Such a report naturally caused great 
uneasiness, as an obstruction in Baltimore closed up the direct 
avenue to Washington, and much delay must necessarily ensue- 
in reinforcing the Federal Capital. Confirmation of the" news 
speedily arrived, and the tie tails of the short sharp tight in the. 
streets we give below. It was supposed. that the Philadelphia 
troops and the Seventh Regimenfwould have to fight their way 
through Baltimore, but the burning of the railroad bridges pre- 
vented their going through by rail, and saved, in all probability, 
hundreds of valuable lives. 

We have, in another column, described the departure from 
New York and the arrival in Philadelphia of the Sixth Regiment 
of Massachusetts Volunteers. AVc will take up their march from 
the time they nrrivcel in Baltimore. 

The Fight in tile Streets of Baltimore. 

The Massachusetts regiment occupied eleven cars, and arrived 
safely and in excellent spirits at Baltimore. There was no de- 
monstration made upon their arrivaLand the cars were permitted 
to leave the depot with the troops still on board. The cai-3 pro- 
ceeded cruietly through the streets of Baltimore on their way to 
the depot, at the other side of the town, and the fears expressed 
by some of the citizens that an attack would bo made were BOtne- 
what allayed. But they had not proceeded more than a couple 
of blocks before the crowd became so dense that the horses 
attached to each car were' scarcely able to push their way 
through. 

At this point the mob began hooting and yelling frightfully, 
and loud threats were uttered against the military. The troops, 
however, maintained a strict reserve, neither showing themselves 
nor replying to the insults BO plentifully heaped upon them. 
The crowd finding that they could not thus exasperate the vol- 
unteers, commenced . throwing stones, brickbats and other mis- 
siles, and eventuaUy tearing up the pavements and hurling them 
in a perfect shower against the cars, smashing the windows and 
severely wounding many of the troops. However, the first nine 
cars succeeded in reaching the depot and departed for Washing- 
ton. 

The remaining two cars of the train, containing about one 
hundred men, were cut off from the main body, and the men 
found themselves encompassed by an infuriated mob of over 
right thousand. These isolated cars were immediately attacked, 
and several of the soldiers had their muskets snatched "from them. 
At this moment news came that the Philadelphia Volunteers had 
arrived, and the report excited the mob to a fearful degree. 

The Massachusetts men, finding the cars untenable, alighted 
and formed a solid square, advancing with fixed bayonets upon 
all sides in double quick time, all the while surrounded by the 
mob — now swelled to the number of at least ten thousand — 
yelling and hooting. The military behaved admirably, and still 
abstained from firing upon their assailants. 

The mob now commenced throwing a perfect shower of mis- 
siles, occasionally varied by a random shot from a revolver or 



one of the muskets taken from the soldiers. The poor fellows 
suffered severely from the immense quantity of stones, oysters, 
brickbats, paving-stones, Sc, the shots fired also wounding sev- 
eral. When two of the soldiers had been killed, and the 
wounded had been conveyed to the centre of the column, the 
troops at last, exasperated and maddened by the treatment they 
had received, commenced returning the fire singly, killing several, 
and wounding a large number of the rioters; but at no one time 
did a single platoon fire in a volley. Our informant is positive 
upon this point. 

The volunteers, after a protracted and severe struggle, at last 
succeeded in reaching the depot, bearing with them in triumph 
their killed and wounded, and immediately embarked. The 
scene is described in glo'.ving tenns by our informant, who says 
that the calm courage and heroic bearing of the troops spoke 
volumes for the sons of Massachusetts, who, though marching 
under a fire of the most embarrassing description, and opposed 
to overwhelming odds, nevertheless succeeded in accomplishing 
their purpose, and effected a passage through crowded streets a 
distance of over a mile — a feat not easily accomplished by a 
body of less than one hundred men when opposed to such terrific 
odds. 



Foreign News. 

England— Owing to tho Easter Holidays, Micro is nothing of any Parlia- 
mentary interest to record, and as the secrets of diplomacy generally ooza out 
through that channel, there Is littlo to record beyond the current rumors of 
the day. A great chango seems to havo taken plica in English sentiment 
towards the Southern Confederacy, sine a Lord Palmerstiu has declared it would 
be an outrage to tho civilizitian of iho world to recognize a Government which 
was based upon slavery ; and when reminded lhat nno of iho earliest axis of 
the Congress at Montgomery was to abolish tho African Slave Trade for over, 
the jaunty Premier said that he considered th;it as a mere blind to conciliate 
England and France. 

France — War set ms to bo in tho ascendant. The Marshals havo boon 
summoned to me-et the Emperor at a grand council, and tuts i3 considered as 
sure evidence of an approaching campaign. The antagonism between Louis 
Napoleon and the Roman Catholic clorgy of tho ultramontane gender sli 1 con- 
tinues, and U is said that the Empress la so much under the influence of that 
extreme party as to seriously embitter the domestic life of the illustrious pair. 
There is also a rumor that a pamphlet by the irrepressible La Guerroniere is 
on the point of publication, entitled " Turkey and tho Emperor." It is also 
stated that in this will appear a solution of tho Italian difficulty. It is suggested 
lhat Austria will give up Vcuetla, in consideration of receiving a territorial 
equivalent out of the proceeds of the Sick Man. There are certain provinces 
now forming part of tho Ottoman empire which would cous'titute Austria as a 
more effectual barrier to Russia than sbe now U, while England might be 
induced to give her consent to the rxbeme by the bribo of Egypt ; Franco to 
havo Syria for her share. How far England, who has hitherto pursued a polloy 
which preferred making Russia a torror to Europe, rather than a menaco to 
her Indian empire, will assist such a policy remains to bo Been. It Is very- 
clear that, if she has Egypt, she need fear nothing from Syria being a dopen 
dency of France. 

Italy— Everything breathes war. Garibaldi Is in the Held, and has dallj- 
interviews with Victor Emanuel and Cavour. The discontent in Hungary 
becomes more and more chronic, and, from his past declarations and his pre 
soot actions, it is not d.fflcult to predicate what his future conduct will be. 
These demonstrations against Austria, however, may be merely meant as argu- 
ments to bring that stolid power to listen to the propositions of France, as 
shadowed forth in the pamphlet wo havo already mentioned. It seems certain 
that Count Rechberg, the Austrian premier, and the French ambassador at- 
Vienna, have had mauy interviews upon the vexata quesiio of the day. 

Havana.- The dates are to tho 15th. The great topis there i3 the occu- 
pation of San Domingo, and tbe excitement caused by the constant departure of 
war steamers and transports with troops, field artillery, military stores aDd 
munitions of war, is very great. Prince Alfred has postponed his visit in con ■ 
sequence of tho death of the-Duchcss of Kent.

THE WOULD OF BILLIARDS. 

To ConBKSroNDKNTS. — Wo have to request the Indulgence of our numerous corre- 
Bpondtntl until our next number. 

Bf.boeii's Kovementp, — We have received a letter from M. Berger, dated 7th April, 1801 
lie had be-n confined to his bed for nearly two weeks, so tuat he had been able to devote 
only ten days to billiard i peratlong. He Is much pkused with the reception he met with 
1 1 Havana. He had given three exl.lhlllons al too Captnln-Qeneral'8 castle, and had received 
, present of. a breastpin from Marshal Soriano and his lady. no had also given three exht- 
bhu>nl at the Club or Cercle des Toradors. Previous engagements obliged M. Betgor to bo 
in New Orleans by the 15th April, and he was to havo leit on toe 7.h by the Bienville. Ho 
proposes to leave New Orleans about the 15th May, and air. Fhelan will meet him at St. 
Louis or Cincinnati, if his business arrangements will admit of It. 

That Knotty Quhstion.— We again submit the question given in No. 282, and Invite 
^o'utlons ol it. We have already received numerous decisions, with the reasons on which 
they are founded, but being unable to give them all la full, we append a synopsis of a 
few : 

" A., B. and C. play a game of 100 points at billiards— a three-handed game. A. gives B. 
30 points. A. and C. p'ay even, aud B. and C. play even. B. makes 70 points and beats A.; 
A. beats C, and C. makes 100 points before B. Who is to pay for the game ?" 

Mr. B d argues thut A. beats B. for 170 points, C. beats B. for 130 points. The prioe o, 

the game being thirty cents, A. Is responsible for seventeen cents and B. for t hi teen boom 

Mr. I. h argues that A., having been beateu by B., losea (ue-tbird of tho game, and 

A., having beaten C, and C. havlug beaten B., B. pays tho balance — that Is, A. pays to" 
cents, aud B. pays twenty cents. 

A long communication fin m B n sal a fiat the game being an extraordinary one, an I 

>iie iiu I In aenornanoe with ihe ill os of hill lard i, must ho decided on Its individual me it'-, 
thus: In the first place, It was t e nalural expectation and intention of tho parlies col 
tefltlnir, that but one should be Mo loser, or, 111 other words, that there should ba IV 
wlnneis and one loser, and that t ie loser should pay for tl.e geme ; therefore, as A. be . 
Ctj and B. beat A., and C. beat B., A. 'oscs to B., B. !osea to C, and C. loses to A. Havh 
made an extmordlnary game In contravention of the regular m'es, the result shows th 
'lie original intentions and expectatlot 3 o the. parties were not i"u filled. It would, thoi - 
o e be llagrant injustice to condemn either of the three — where all staud precisely nl.kr 
to pay for the game ; they must, therefore, pay i qnnby as being a draw game. 

A member of the legal proleerion argues that B. should pay for the game, thus : Tin 
eame, os between A. ai.d B., is d-cided, of course, on B. making the 7n points : but A. U 
not out as to C, until he makes his.100 points. Now, having made bis 100, ho is out of th" 
;«nie, and It lies between B. and C, and C, making Afs 100 points, of course wins, and B. 
s the loser. 

We have many other communications on the same subject, synopsis of which we win 
present In future Issues.

.,.., -"'• 'f fhe wished to have an interview with him, she should sond such 
re< J a "^t to him. 

Km made uo inquiries respect ln*r her Of Lady Hand on the following dav, 

but at the end of the week, by Pharisee, lu learnt V at Lady Kingswood,' Lady 

Maud and *~yrd bail departed from tho mansion lor Brighton, under the advico 

•»f an eminent physician who bad bi.cn called in to attend Lady Maud in a 

Ddden attack of iUnes-. 

Lord Kingswood bit his lip, turned white, recalled Lady Kiugswood's words 
•and curse, drew a deep b-eath, but lie ma<le no reply. 

I'hajlsce made no comment IIo looked haggard and ill at ease. Ho had 
suddenly appeared before Lord Kinp.swood the evening after the incident in the 
I , l«'iuro-gftllery,and informed bis lo/dship that bo had been unable lo r.btain an 
'itcrview with, old Pemreep, and should be in no position lor sorxo time to 
cimo to oMaln aoy further information respecting Erie or his companion, the 
Wonder of Kingswood Chase. 

In tho frame of mind iu which Lord Kingswood then happened to be tho 
communication did not affect him — be merely w*ved his hand, and said it mat- 
tered not. So Pharisee quietly fell into tho resumption of his old duties again. 

A physiognomist would, however, alter a rerusaloi his features, have de- 
clared that there was some deadly purpose lurking iu that mau's mind. 

In the mansion of Horace Vernon, scarcely more than a stone's throw from 
Lord Kinsswood's residence, there won* events occurring which were hardly of 
a less stirring nature, to one being at least. 

I nt), a tat ibe e-xti aordmary eouf mon which had so unexpectedly fallen 
from the lips of Beatrice Stanhope, felt like rue who had been suddenly aroused 
out of a trance ooly to bo bun led Into a region of wild, chaotic confusion. 

He sent, as he had promised, a medical gentl man to attend Beatrice — a cir- 
cumstance wh'ch, ns she quickly recovered, and found Erie bad departed ab- 
ruptly, was singularly ann.ying 10 her — and he hurried home, tough! his own 
chamber, *ud there, in astute of bewilderment, went over the whole scene 
which he had just enact! d with Beatrice. 

Hj questioned himself clcwely as to the manner in which he had act* d to her 
so as to cioate ibo passion of love within ber breast, rnd after a seat thing ex- 
amination, be fell sure that she had wholly misconceived his actions, words 
and looks. The regard he enteitained for her was purely ore of friendship, 
and could never be anything else ; and he saw in a moment that be must not 
even indulge in this sentiment, to far as it wad likely to bring them into each 
other'* society again, as by such a stcpsln? would only be increasing the evil it 
was his duty at once to stop. 

But how to stop it 1 He shrank from writing to'her ; ho was a novice In 
affairs of tho heart, he only knew that ho himself loved, and that words of any 
kind addressed to hirn, telling him that bis lovo was and must be hopek- *, 
would picrco his breast with tho bitlorcst and mo.-t poignant grief; and bow 
could he iudito words to her every guo of which would b« like an arrow in her 
heart! 

add, to meet her and be eilent on what had transpired would be wholly im- 
D >^ Ible. Jf ho kept her in ignorauco as lo the real slate of his feelingi. towards 
ber, nnd acted as kindly lo her as heretofore, he would only be fosteriDg and 
•encr uraging the attachment which she bad so unexpectedly confessed. To be- 
have er.b-ly and Indifferently he could not, and to inform her that he was sorry 
lhat she should havo (alien io love with him, as he could not return it, was a 
"pieco of ciuelty to the pertorm»nce of which ho did not feel equal. There was 
bat one plan, and that was to endeavor, as far as p* srible, to avoid her pre- 
sence, without appearing to do so intentionally, to absent himself from home 
ween sbo was expected 10 visit Violet, and to carelully keep away irom recep- 
tions and places in which they were likely to come iu contact. 

Such an absence, apparently accidental, but persisted in, would no doubt be 
understood by her, and would induce her to turn her thoughts elsewhere. She 
had many admirers — that Erie knew — and in their adulations and ardent atten- 
UoM by hoped that she would forget that be had ever existed. 

II irtag <■< ctded upon this coone, be proceeded to put it into execution, and 
consequently was absent much freru home, and from those places, indeed, at 
which Ishma'I especially requested bimlo appear. 

I ihmael at length noticed thi--, and Likewise that Beatrice Stanhope no longer 
visited them. She had been so constant in comiug to see Violet, that her ab- 
sence was conspicuous, not. that Violet made any remark about it, for she 
seemed to have some cherished subject of thought which rendered ber more 
eheerfulthbn -lie bad hitbeito been, especially when alone. She was not 
averse to Beatrice's Society, became she loved" to bear her, being an nccom- 
i-ii bed musician, play upon the pianoforte. Thou performances were lessons 
1 1 bi r ivfn 1 . t tno*e valuable than those she continued to'reeeive from an ex- 
ceedingly clever mt6trees,and as she bad conceived a pasek Date fondness for 
music, tho society of any one who could minister to ii whs pleasing. 

Beatrice bad devoted so much 'of her conversation to Erie when be was with 
them, that she could hardly b? a compar tou wl cm Violet would miss ; there- 
fore, her coutinued absence elicited no remark from her ; while the continued 
j*i esenco of Carlton, though contrasting strongly with tbe tuddeu withdrawal 
of Bi/aTice, was equally subject to no observation. In .fact, it was a relief to 
Violet when Carlton sat by her side am talked to her ; it'enablcd her to think 
without attracting the attention of those in company. 

bhmaet'S segecttj Jed him to divine the cause of the conduct of bolh Erie 
"n^ Beatrice ; and one day, in the presence of Eile, he said to Carlton Stan- 
hope : 

•• v\e m'.-s your sister, Mr. Stanhope, .'.re her engagements so suddenly 
nn neroos that she cannot spare us one poor hour or so?" 

'• £be is not well," it-turned Carlton, immediately. 

Erlo felt Ids heart beat violently, and bent his nead over a book. 

'• 1 regret to hear it," returned Mima* I. with a furtive glance at Eile, whose 
f ce be perceived to be suddenly flushed with crimson. " Nothing serious, I 
hope." 

" No," rolurncd C&rlton. " Our medical man says It is puro'y an attack of 
the nervous system. 

'* Indeed ! In what way does It develop itself r" interrogated Ishmael, still 
Meadi'i'Ptly watchii'g Erie's face, which he perceived deepened in color each 
moment. 

" Wvll, In a s|iecies of depress!' n of ipfrfts, lowness, tears and general Se- 
nility," icturned Carlton. •' The doctor terms it, I think, hy jKicLondriasis." 

,; 111 and sad," observed Violet, In a tone of ccnuem, ann thoughtfully, too. 
" Shall 1 not po to ber, and try to alleviate her grief if possible r Perhaps it is 
not possible," she added musingly. 

"Thank joufor jour gentle consideration," exclaimed Carltcn, "but sbo 
tottetS on bciDg alone. The medical attendant advists charge of air, and I be- 
lieve she goes out of town in the morning." 

No one present at-ked wber«\ 

Erie r se up and walked to the window. Then be strode towards the door. 

Isbmael stopped him. 

" Do not have 1;- Jnet yet. I wish to speak with you presently." 

Erie threw bimseli into a scat, and took up tho book at which be had been 
looking. 

Iihmael glanced a* Violet, and speaking with emphasis, said to Carlton, 

" I do not think H at I should attach any serious importance to such an attack 
as that which appears 10 have se>zed your sister. Young ladies are apt to lake 
strange fatcles into their brain, aLd tho? treat them like flower; — try to nourish 
them with moisture. A girl without a secret sorrow or flood of tears indulged 
in, in privacy, would be a kind of nondescript, fortunately, perhaps, they cqn- 
trive mo.-tly to kill their pla ts with too much moisture, for I have noticed that 
after a lime the ttorra clouds dispute, the sun shines out as bright as before, 
nod the spirits become lighter and gayer than ever." 

Violet looked up at him, even smi ed, hut the shook her head. 

" I never knew Beatrice do this sort cf thing before," exclaimed Carlton, 
thougbtiull>. '-.he has aUays bad a very continuous flow ef spirits, and 
rather a Birong mind. I can't think what can have occasioned such an extra- 
ordinary change in her." 

"I can," thought I-bmael. " My plot so far woiks well." 

" I thiLk," continued Carlton, " that jou, Mr. Vernon, take the correct view 
of the matter, and that Beatrice will soon be the tame as she always has 
been." 

"I hope so," exclaimed Erie with animstiOS. 

A smile curled lshaael's hp. 

" lees he love her?" he thought. M I think not. If he does, he must break 
with it, If ho break hb heart too." 

" There has been a great deal or illness lately," observe! Carlton. a There 
has been rather over much of tl at the Kingswoods." 

"Ha! is ih*t so*" exe'a-med Isbmsel. sharply. "Who is 111 in that 
f.milyr" 

" li would bo difficult to say who is not," returned Carlton. " Lord Kings- 
wood looks like a spectre ; my father says that it Is .with fag.ing to bard at 
the wo k of the department bo presides over. At ail t \ us,,:i - in every one's 
mouth that he looks haggard and harried quite as much from some secret source 
ef unhappincps as from over application to the duties' of his office. It is rumored, 
indeed, thu I/»rd and Lady Kintswood do not live very happily together." 

A giro smile settled en Lshnael's features. 

'' l.-.dy Kmgswood is very 111. fcho does not keep ber chamber, but I am 
» nil uib.ippj" continued CarliVD, " and a(he 
■ ■ > raewhat ^rarge :n her manner. Cyril KingEwc'od, 

to<>, is very i ).' 

violet turned eagerly to him. 

"111!" she exciaime<l eagerly. At ihe ramen.cmenl her eye caught that 
of I"hraael. the saw that it |leamed Ike a living coal. She sank lack in her 
chilr in rilencc. 

" Yes," preteeded Carlton, "be Is l M " ,,! ■** ; * m ^orry to say. Is Lady 
Maud St Clah-." , .. ' 



Erie felt as though ho could havo leaped out o." bH seat, but having seen the 
silent passago between Isbmael and Violet, when tho name of Cyril Kingswood 
was mentioned, he remained as still and kept his features as impassible as If 
they were carved in marble. 

"Ibo lamily," added Carlton, after a short pauao, "hays quilted London 
for Brighton." 

"All I" interrogated Ishmael. 

"All," replied Carlton, " that is lo tay, Lady Kingswood, Lady Maud and 
Cyril. Loru Kingswood follows immediately." 

Shortly after this conversation ceased Carlton Stanhope took bis leave. 

A brief silence ensued. Erie broke it. Addressing Isbmael, ho fcaid, 

" You expressed a wish to speak with roe, sir. I attend you." 

"It was nothing, nothing," urswered Ishmael, leaning bis head upon his 
hand rrflectively. " I intended to say fhat we shall leave London for Brighton 
to-morrow." 

Violet pressed her hands together, and breathed inaudlbly — 

" Amen 1" 

^rlc, too, compressed his hands in each other, and murmured — 

"Amen !"

AunocGit Ishmael had named an early hour the following day lor ihedeparturo 
of Violet, Erie and himself irero Londe n to Brighton, it was not until late in 
the afternoon that all his arrargeroents were completed. The five o'clock ex- 
press was the train he selected, and in bet little more than an hour beyond 
that time a carriage received tbtm at the Brighton terminus, and proceeoed at 
a dashing pace down the Queen's road and "V- est street, took its way along tho 
King's road, and ultimately halted at a magnificent mansion in Brunswick ter- 
race. A* thick haze arismg'from the sea prevented the occupants of tbe car- 
riage from teeing anything save the brilliant lights in shop-windows dimmed 
by the fcg, or tho glimmering lamps, placed few and far b-.tween on the edge 
01 the jcotway. 

Sdil adhering to the regulation Isbmael had established, each dined ia iheir 
apartment alone, and retired to rest without again meeting that night. 

Violet, absorbed in the del ghtful probability of again seeing Cyril Kingswcod, 
took but httlo heed of her new surroundings, and though sbo bad never seen 
the sea, the felt IndifTeient to ber close proximity to it, and did not once draw 
tbe window-blind aside :o attempt to get a yicw of it, even th mgh she bad 
heard Isbmael, as ihcy drew Lear to ibo house at which they bad alighted, 
speak of It, and had observed him poitt out itsd rectlon. . 

One new aud ttrango thing sbo became couscious of, but not until she had 
reined to rest, and that was a peculiar, mournful, rushing sound, repeated and 
subsiding at regular inttrvals. It reminded her of her lorest-homc when Un-

pressing and eveu terrifying when beard, during a temporary £ojourn in jone 
country places, by others who have lived in busy and populated town?, where 
such sounds are seldom or never henrd. 

In ibe ear of Violet the surge and break of the sea upon tho shore, tho long 
roll ol the descending thinglo as it lehowed tbe retreating wave, to be again 
cast up, although she knew tot what occasioned them, were sounds inexpres- 
tibly grateful Again, in her mental virion, she sat iu ber leafy borne with 
Cyril t*y ber side, ^gamsho listei.ed to his tender semimente, so soft and so 
musically-breathed in her willirgc;r, as he gazed upon ber with hi3 fond eyes, 
not less loving and ardent in the r expression than ber own. 

And so she was by tbis tender, murmuring, complaining music wooed to 
sleep, think ing oi Cyril as she sank into slumber, r-nd living over the past with 
him in her happy, happy dreams. 

The sunlight awakened her, the gradually-brifihtcuiitg beams penetrating 
throrgh her wim'ow-blinds filled ber apartment with their golden rays, ana 
seemed to bring with them a freshness and animation to her spirits. 

She arose and attired herself. She threw open ber easement, and started 
hack with a cry of astonishment and delight. What a sight met her gaze I 

Tbe wind hfid changed from tbe east to the south, and iho haze had all disap- 
peiued. Before her was an expanse of ocean, bounded only by the sky, on the 
right by the spur of land upon which the town ed' Worthing Etands, on the left 
by tall cliflV. The sea was as calm as a lake and as blue. Upon its still surface 
rested a few febJng-bOata at anchor, r sing and falling gently, as tin. ugh they 
were reposing upen the breast of a prostrate slee] big giant," and tluir motion 
was created by the gradual coming and going of bisbre..th. 

Immediately beneath ber eyes was a broad, well-kept roadway, and beyond 
that, stretch! g dmvn to the beach, a green slope also well kept, and frtm its 
I roxinuty to the sh tiK-ed shore, especially pleasant and attractive to the eye. 

A few pedesh i ins were slowly pacing to and fro, and some fishermen were 
strct(hl"g ttelr arms and hes.taling whether they would lean against tho rails 
bet re them on their bent arms or with their backs. 

Althorgh yet e.rly in the mcrning, and early, too. in the spring, some 
bi tblDg-mecmnea were standing in the sea, minwheef in depth, and some 
singular lo king objects iu yellow ot'slln caps and dark-bluo dresses, strikingly 
d. nuded of crinoline, were, w.ti ropes hbout ihefr waists, bobbing op and down 
in the quiet water, something aftej- the style of dancing dervishes. 

Tbe str seemed so fresh, the sky eo clear and bright, a fleecy, lazy cloud only 
bore and there mottling the wide expanse of the blue beaven ; the hum of ui- 
crtasmg traffic, the plamt ve beat of the sea as it ran up tbe shore broke in a 
thn line of white !nam, receded ot ly lo return and repeat its chafing— the whole 
icene, in fact, was so new, so Btranee, so brilliant and to attractive, that Violet, 
quite enchanted, sttwd at her wind* w gizing eagerly in all directions, unt 1 he 
attendant sun moned her to the less roir.ar.tic but not lees essential to health 
and comfort prospect of a well-fur ntihtd breakfast table. 

V'Oiet bad no eye?, no appetite lor her morning meal; the thought only of 
Ibe novel and beautiful scene she had beheld, and of the probabil.lv that she 
shoula again see Cyril in th;s fair p'ace. 

It was with uo l.ttle pleasure that the, at a Inter j-eriod of the morning, com- 
piled with Ishroael's request to accempany himself and Erie in a walk upon the 
tsplanade. At Ids desire, gfce enveloped her features in a thick veil, as this 
would enable her— although bo did not explain to her hi* object in wishing ber 
to do thi- — to observe snd notice the pcrsen> whom she met, and other objects 
worthy of Interest, without hereell attracting attention of a character likely to 
contuse and eo harrassher. 

lbi ■ li'iir approached neon, and tho walks and the beach itself, at a certain 

part, wcro thronged with visitors. Though not what ti termed the Brighton 

■ is ■■« b, ilere was, nevertheless, a largo concourse of promenadors, most of 

them • \ Ede'btiy persons of good station, and, not a mean proportion, individuals 

of dlstfnc fon. 

As they wended their way slowly a'ong, accosted every few steps by pester- 
tngjtt polite, boatmen, who, with fingers raised to their temples, desired to 
know if they would '* Like to have a sail dis mam' r" d< daring it was a " fine 
mam' for a sail," although there was scarcely a breath of wind stirring and 
not a ripph- on tho eca, Violet regarded with some surprise the costume adopted 
generally by the crowds of young and handsome laeties, who passed her at a 
somewhat brisk and martial step and fro. The small bats perched upen the 
tops of their heads, originally affected by the Spanish contrabandists, disp'ayed 
more openly even than the litt'e bonnets wnicb had at one fine been ihe 
bsbJon tli',- charming faces which the fair owi:ere certainly betrayed no Inten- 
tion of concealing. Tbe figures, pttfU and graceful, wi re io some Instances set 
Off to advantage by lightly-fi ting mantles, or were hidden under copes, 
fashioned lilo tbote occasionally worn by tho sterner sex. Tae skirt* ol tbe 
dresses were nnmually amplified, and caught up, in ir.ustinstanc-s,sufllckntly 
high to exhibit an under garment of the most brrlhant colors, as well as ankles 
encated in startling-) ned hose, abruptly terminated by the smallest, most 
beautifully-shaped and the " dearest" Balmoral boots in Lhe world. 

Violet, m her innocence, charmed with the beauty of these young, dashingly- 
attired ladies, believed them to ho natives or some other clime ; yet she thought 
that they could hardly be lore'gners, for their glances, though but glances, 
were dir'Cted upon the many elegantly-dressed gentlemen as they passed, and 
Ihcse of the gentlemen upon them, pretty much in the fashion of a mutual and 
not unfavorable rococo itir.t;. Some ol tho gentlemen, too, wore hats similar to 
those adopted by the young ladies and »he thought them odd and silly ; but 
Etill every one teemotl to pass them without particular notce, to she assumed 
that it wa3 " native to tbe cust m," aud though possibly verv ei^rc, still quite 
proper to tho place she was then Iu. 

In the roadway there were singers dressed in tho costume of the Swiss 
cantens, warbling aire irom favorite operas, while In other parts there were 
German bands making morn hideous by their detestable uproar. Inaqoiet 
tipot was to bo teen a being with a sallow face, to which water bad long been a 
myth, on which struggled black, ragged moubtiches, aud whose bead was 
amply furnished with long, greasy, black hair, apparently ill of asoDgb^a 
favorite composer. And further en, a body of nigger mirstrels might be beard 
t,oing through a venal performance, accompanied by banjo, tamborine ucd 
bones, with as much rapidity as if they expected the mimc-ditte ar.proach of a 
policeman to put an end to Jbeir exhibition, before they could bave time to 
collect their reward from a smiling but not vsry bberal crow d of spectators of 
tbe humble class. 

An instrumental concert of a different kind was taking p?acc upon tbe beach 
In front of the Bedford Hotel. A respectable bedy of musicians, styled the 
Town Hand, here executed with skill, precieigo aert an excellence scarcely to 



be expected under the circumstances, overtures, pieces, polkas, waltzos and 
other music. Aud bore a vory large assemblage of tne principal visitors con- 
gregated, some seated on chars, others on benches, aud not a few perched 
mon the steps of balbing-macbine3, of which nt this part ihero is a large 
number extending in one long line. 

Ishmael paused here to enable Violet to sco a phase of lifo entirely new to 
ber. Interspersed w.th ladies and gentlemen wero ebildien, attended by 
nursemaids, iciively employed in grubbing hole3 in the sand and shingle, or 
gaziug wiih admiration upon a one-armed man, whoso bead wasgarnished with 
a crimson can having a tassel ornament ut tho eud dropping down to his 
shoulder. Ibis individual sold cakes, giugerbread nuts and brandy-balls, and 
reqii'.rcd to be favored by aoy of his small but lougirg auditors, with a so.utiou 
of the problem, " that if one of the nuts would warm cither or any of them 
for a week, what would a pound do?" Mixed up with tbis motley gioup might 
bj s'.en bathing-women, wiih bonnets upen their beads of an ancient shapo 
and blue lUnnel drosses on their bodies of narrow dimension^, curtailed pro- 
portions, and inelegant fashion, standing, arms akimbo, talking to a kind ot 
hybrid seamen, who sat or lollej about with folded amis, pipe in mouih, firm 
in th" belief that we rk was not inteuded for them or expected ol them, and 
that there is but one paradise, which is beer, and tobacco is its prophet. 

The sounds of music, the thronging of individuals, restless iu their move- 
ments a* tho sea itself, tbo passing to and fro of long strings of young ladies, 
yet under the martinet rule of tho schoolmistress, and longing to bo emanci- 
pated from it, the whirlings by of equestrians, male ar.d female, the rolling of 
carriages phaetons, llys nn i oiber vehicles, the bright, clea*- atmosphere, tie 
wide, wide sea, dee, ening eich moment hi cobr, all combined to hewil er and 
confuse Violet, but, at the same t mo, to amuse, interest and delight her. 

Ishmael watched her closely. Ho could see tho gliltcr of ber eye through 
the yell, and tho heightening of tbe color on her check; and ho could also tell, 
by her eager examination of the difleiect objects tbe scene presented, together 
with the elasticity of her step, that she was deeply interested and excited by 
what she beheld. 

lie beut his head low down to her, and said, 

" The sight pleases you, Violet?" 

" Oh, very greatly, indeed," she returned, with vivacity. 

" There are hundreds such scenes which await your inspection," be replied, 
with some emphasis; "and now you will better understand tbattbe broken 
heart 1*000 knew a resuscitation — it doth net perish for ever." 

He felt her stait and shud-'er as be breathed these words Into ber ear. He 
saw her head oroop.but she made him uo reply. 

Ho could scarcely havo expected an answer, yet he felt something vexed that 
she did not reply. Ho almost fancied him^eif premature In the supposition that 
change of scene, and inercoursc with tbo world, would make her Jorget; aid 
yet sbo was evidently impressionable. Others, as fair and gentle as her, hid 
been carried away from the memory cf lhe old by the seft words and toiler 
smiles of newer friends, and why should she remain unchangeable, when so 
many e>f ber sex were as mutable as that va^t ocean upon which he then 
gazed ? 

He was disturbed by ber continued silence, and by the fact that, on conduct- 
ing her to the Chain-pier, upon which weie gathered but a few persons, tbe in- 
terest she hid exhibited in everything >=he saw previously seemod to have 
faded away, and that bis observations and remarks wero poured into a dull and 
hid flerent ear. 

Erie, duringthe whole of their walk, hadappearcd, perhaps, as interested as 
Violet in a scene as nuvel and attractive lo him as to her; but his aitention 
had been evidently divided by an expectation of meeting Lady Maud during 
Uieir stroll; and even up to their almost solitary promenade on ibe pier, he old 
hot diminish bis active inspection of every one approaching or pasricg him; still, 
however, to be disappointed. 

Had he been vain and conceited of his personal appearance — had ho any 
thought for other than Lad* Ma d — he would huve been flattered by the atten- 
tion he excilcd. Black eyes, blue eyes, hazel and brown eyes, ail feminine 
orb; looked up into his face a.* they peeved him, and flashed the brighter on be- 
holding a countenance so handsome ; but the deliberate stare, the fluttering eye- 
lid, tbe coy glance or the sly look, passed unheeded by him — they were not 
Lady Maud a eyes, and so he cared n<it how sweet, bow bright, or how bluo, 
they were ; they wanted the charm of belongiug lo her he loved more deeply 
and more passionately tho more he;r preseLcu was denied to him. 

One eft cult of the pier, and Isbmael led the way* (ff it. He, too, seemed d'sap- 
pointed that he bad not encountered some one whom ho had evidently expect' 
ed to meet, and bo returned with them iu silence, and with a kid .ted brow to 
their residence.. 

On reaching 'ibe door, bo said, looking at bh watch, 

"I bave ordered horses. They will be here in an hour. You had better 
take luncheon. I. will return to the drawing-re om at ibe time I bave men- 
tioned, and accompany you in your ride." 

Ho leit them as be concluded, and ascended lo his chamber, while they, ac- 
cording to custom, parted, each seeking their own rooms, to tako their meals 
alone. 

When Violet returned to the drawing-: 00m, dressed for the equestrian trip, 
she saw Erie standing by tho window, gazing thoughtfully upen the sea wiih 
a dejected expression on bis features. 

She stole up to h.m, and tapped him lightly on the shoulder. He started and 
turned round to ber. There was a sudden, haughty, fierce expression in his 
eyes, but it changed when he perceived Violet. 

" You are sad," ehe exclaimed. 

A sigh involinfarily escaped him. 

*' I am anxious, tioublcd, perplexed, Violet,* 1 he exclaimed. " I have several 
matfers to disturb me, and each hour they grow more and more insupportable. 
Ihere appears to me but one course" — he lowered his voice as be pneeeded 
— u and that is, to fly from this bondage. It galls me beyond my powers of 
-ion to describe. I know not who I am— I bave only a lew horrible sur- 
mises — 1 know not for what lato I am roscrved. I know only that at present I 
am a creature, a tool, an instrument in the bauds ol Isbmael for some dire pur- 
i ose, and this Is a state of being I am resolved to end. I will remain only until 
I have fulfilled iho object of my vis t, and then no more shall be beard of me 
until iny name shall bo uttered in honor, and my presence, instead of beirg 
the subject for ftoger-pointing and wonder, shall be welcomed with pride and 
satisfaction. 

Violet looked athim with an expression of terror on her face. 

u You will not, Erie, leave me alono with Ishmael?" ens said. 

" lie will befriend and protect you as ho has hitherto done," ho responded, 
taking her hand. 

Sho drooped ber head. 

"Ho bath vowed that I shall never, never wed Cyril," pho murmured, in a 
sorrowful tone. ,( He will keep bis vow to long as I am wholly and entirely In 
his power. You bade me have faith — you hade me hope — you pointed out to 
me how, linked together In isolation as we arc, you would remain by my side, 
you would work a pathway out oi tho en'anglcd mystery which surrounds 
us, and lift me with you inio the sunshine of happiness, l bave had faith in 
your words, in your promises, in the future, because you bade me ; but if I am 
now to be left by you alone with Ishmael, there is hope for mo no longer. I 
may abandon all, and pray only tor the hour to come which will release me 
frcm life." 

" Do not believe, Violet, though I leave you, I shall desert you or forget 
you," he responded, iu a kind and soothing voice. " Reviewing tho past, from 
the first hour 1 set foot in Kingswood Hall until now, I am only each day more 
confirmed in the belief that the destinies of both of us are interwoven with 
those of the Kingswood family. I cannot divioe how, but that it i3 so I am 
are, I shall not, I suspect, be able to unravel tbis comj-licatcd matter by re- 
maining with Isbmael, to act like one taking part in a pageant. I must adopt 
another course, 'and I bave framed a plan which may be successful. It may 
bo disadvantageous to mc ; be i: so — I shall dare It. But I will not quit you for 
ever without some bold eflort for your happiness. I havo deciJcd upon this, 
and I may not have an opportunity of speaking to you again. Before, there- 
fore, 1 quit lhe subject, there aro two matters I wish strongly to Impress upon 
you— remember and act upon them. Tho first is, that you bear an extraordi- 
nary resemblance to a portrait of a lady of the raco of Kingswood hanging in 
an old apartmenfof Kingswood Hall ; and, likewise, to a statue of that lady 
standing in the antique library. Your face, th're seen, I have beheld also 
vividly in — irj_"_ be passed bis hands with a sudden movement over his 
temples — '*iu dreams it may be — day-dreams, vi-lons ; but still your face, 
bright and clear as 1 see it now " 

" As I have seen yours in that picture which bangs in the old hunting-tower 
at Kingswood Chase," she exclaimed, with a startled, excited manner ; " and 
at night in tho forest depths, in the cold, gray moonbeams — and in— my 'dreams 
and visions, too," she added, in a tone wheh mace him thrill. 

"So shall it prove that we are both of the race of Kingswood," he re 
turned, m almost a solemn tone. 

"Nc— uo— this cannot be," she cried, hastily. "No, no, Cyril Kingswood 
cinnot bo allied by blood to me — only — only, Erie, by love." 

* We must prove that," ho said, musingly. " There is a mystery which 
awes me as I contemplate it, but I will laihom it. And therefore do I secondly 
impress upon you to feel no surprise, concern, or betray any feeling If sud- 
denly jou mss me from our daily communion. Ishmael will not sneak of it 
to you : be silent to him rospectim- it, and let him think as ho may, although it 
seems harsh tor mc to say this. I would bo grateful to him if I could, but he 
should satisfy mc that what ho has riono for mo has been for my benefit, and 
not alone to gratily the promptings of an uncompromising revenge." 

Ti: • last words" had hardly left his lips when Ishmael mado his appearance 
in the com. He motioned to them, without speaking, to follow him, and they 
obeyed m silence. „ ' J 

Their own horses were at the door attended by two grooms. 

A crowd qui :kly assembled to see them mount, and many and loud were tho 
exclamations of a Imtration from a very humble audience at Violet's beauty. 
Her atlire was nearly tbe same as that in which she appeared In Hyde Park, 
and It attracted as much attent on here as it had dono there. 

As they rode slowly along, many gentlemen on horseback, meeting them, 
turned and lollowcd in tbo rear, until, as on former occasions, there was quite 
a cavalcade formed. 

A carriage approached them slowly : it was open, and contained two ladies 

Au exclamation from Isbmael drew the attention of belli Erie aud Violet to 
its inmates. 

41 Lady Klngsvoou !" he cried. *< By hcavenB I how changed !" 

Erlelcoked into tho carriage, and there beheld Lady R/ngswood and Lady- 
Maud seated side by side. Tho face of Lady Kingswood was ttin, haggard 
and strongly marked, and there was a strange wildness in her eye a* she 
turned it rapidly right and left. Her wandering glances w^re suddenly 
arrested by Erie's face, and she uttered a hasty exclamation, half rose up, and 
then fell back almost senseless in her seat. 

One glance of surprise at her. and then Erie's eyes fastened upon tbe face 
of lady Maud.

Ber eyos kindled as they rueth's, ber pale cheek flushed, a faint smile curled 
her Jlp, and then her face became as white as death again. 

A moment, and they were gone — a moment, and all the faces vivid In his 
eyes an instant previously had disappeared. 

Even so unto the eyes ot Violet, for site caught sight of Cyril Kingswocd, 
who was on horseback," absorbed in thought, and did not too h- r. She would 
have attracted his att ntion, but she knew not bow, and before even f-he could 
make a gesture wbr:h nvght have the effect of makiDg him turn his eyes npon 
her, Ishmael rode sbgotly in advance of ber, then dropped to her side, and 
Cyril was gone, unknowing bow near bo had once more been to ber. 

Kurirg the ride they m-t 10 more, although both Erie and Violet so much 
wished <o have again et countered tbem. A glance of recognition alone would 
have made Violet bappy, but it was not to be, and they returned home to 
dinner with their wishes un gratified. 

Violet, however, hoped that she might yet have the happiness of seeing Cvril 
once again, even thout h sho should be uuable to interchange a word with him. 
IJer sit;ing-room window looked out into the esplanade and roadway, and as 
Eoon as she was niece she watched at it, but watched in vain, until deep night 
set in, and she could no longer recognise ore form from another. 

But soon after dawn she was again at her window watching— watching 
with an intensity of hopefulness that he would appear. It would be such joy 
to her to see him, and bis eyes might fall once again on her face, and beam as 
radiantly up. n ber as tboy had of old, and even if they did thi3sbe could wait 
in patience and resignation for the timo to come when they should meet to be 
no more parted on earth. 

And even whilo si ch pleasing, hopeful, tender thoughts were passing 
through her brain, she saw Cyril before bor eyes, standing on the pathway, 
gnzirjg seaward, motionless and abstracted. 

She did not think. 

She caught un her walking attire, donned it hastily, and within a minute she 
fctood by his side. 

11 Cyi II," she murmured. 

He turned, and his asioni^bed eyes fell upon her white, excited face. 

" Violet I" he exclaimed, with a wild, passionate cry. 

He seized her hands and pressed tbem to his lips. 

Then a cry of agony burst from bim. He flung her hands down: 

'* N° — no — no," he exclaimed, with a terrible shudder, " no, it must not be — 
it cannot be I dare no' see you more. No, we part for ever 1 Oh, horror! 
Oh, doath I for ever and ever !" 

Tussing his hands madly up, be darted from the spot, leaving Violet standing 
paralysed. 

A shadow c?me before ber — a voice sounded in her ears — 

" Thus I have told y* u." — 

But she seemed to know, feel, bear nothing. All poA*er of thought, sight,

imate and unconscious, by I«hmael.

NEWS OF THE WEEK. 

Mr. Joes lyn has presented to tho Central Park a mngnlQcent live eagle, wliich 
was captured in Northern New York. In the act 01 carrying off a goose. 
Bpconvng en'angled iu some brushwood and being attacked by a deg, the 
bird threw himself upon bis back, and w th talons, beak and wings, made a 
most gailart resistance, until he was Anally rescued by a i arly or Ameiicau 
citizens. Lotus hope this will prove a happy omen in the present struggle. 

Thb frequency of stabb og casc3 iu drinking saloons renders some Legislative 
act'on necessary to control these murder manufactories. We have bad five of 
of these aff ays in b n days. Joset h Jus'a, tLo Italian, who was stabbed on 
Wednesday evening, the 17tb, in Baxter street, by another Italian, sixty-three 
years of age, named Joseph George, died, on the 19ih, in ihe New York Hos- 
pital. The parties, it appears, quart cl.'cii at the house No. 19 Baxter street, 
and proceeded to tho sidewalk for a fight IHre Justa hurled a brlcktat at 
George, who retaliated by stabbing him twice with a large dagger, once in the 
banti, ard then la tho breast. The latter wound, winch was deep, provd 
fatal. George, who was arrested at the lime, is still in prson, and awaits the 
result of a coroner's inquest, which will bo held to-day. The police report 
both as having been bad men, and state that thev have served several terms in 
State Prison. 

Mb. Nottbeck, lhi Russian Consnl-General, was killed, en Thursday morning, 
by being thrown from his horse, near Forty-ninth street and Broadway. He 
was with bis wife, on horscbark, in the Central Park about i iuo o clock, when 
his animal took fright and ran off towards Bleorringdale. On reaching Fotty- 
ninth street he was thrown on his head, and when taken up was quite dead. 

A Mr. J. 0. Hgpinax has been tried for stealing a small quaulily of snuff. 
Much merriment was occasioned in oourt on account of the similarity of name 
loour great champion. We are happy to add, f.r tho honor of the name, that 
the snufftsker was acquitted. 

Ws cannot tell whether it is a ruse to keep our streets dirty for another 
month or not, but Mr. Hackloy, the contractor to clean them, has been tent to 
jail for fifty day.", for relu.-ing to answer a question. It is so suggestive teat 
we quote the proceedings : " What did you do with the SiG.OOQ which yon re- 
ceived from Thom»s Hope on the llih of February lor the purposes of the 
street-cleaning contract i" To which the witness answered, "In the abserce 
cf counsel, unprepared as I am, my answer niieht furnish a link in the chain, 
or lead to some evidence that would criminate me in somo way." The ques- 
tion was again repealed in open court, and as the witness still refused t" 
answer, Recorder Hoffman adjudged him guilty of contempt and ordered bis 
commitment to the County Jail for thirty day.-. 

The frequency of suicide among married women, occasioned by eleimrstic 
difficulties, Is becoming quite a nuticcahlo feature in our BIOS 01 Mortality. 
Four married women last week poisoned themselves on that account. Coroner

sonp and tempting ltavass, from tbe whirl'gigs and skittles, and all 
the other edifying games, to tbe very depths "of the pine wood 
which adorns the back of the island, and, at a moment lilte this, 
becomes entirely deserted. 

The young prirce walked in among the solitary paths of the wood 
for a long tiate without meeting a soul, and, feeling weary, threw 
himself down upon the grass beside one of the little running streams 
with which the island is intersected in every direction. He bad not 
lain long in this position, when he was aroused from the reverie into 
which the hour and the silence and tbe solitude had plunged him. 
by the most heavenly voice he had ever heard, although he had been 
permitted to frequent the opera during the whole of last winter, 
and had listened to Bosio, Alboni and even Mario without the 
smallest emotion. The hour of his fate was come ; for, on rising to 
ascertain whence these angelic sounds proceeded, he came suddenly 
upon the figure of the angelic being who had uttered them. The 
companions oflrsImperialHighness'are rude enough to say lhattbe 
angel in question was rather — the least in the world — in need of a dip 
into the little stream by wbichshe was seated, sineing a wild strain to 
her little uncouth imitation of a guitar, in order to bring out the beau- 
ties which lay hid behind the mask, which much travel and the great 
heat of the journey had placed upon her exquisite features. But in 
this ca?e, so far from being-blind, the little imp, Cupid, enabled the 
prince's eye to penetrate beneath this cruet to the miraculous 
beauties which lay beneath, and in an instant his heart, and soul, 
and mind, and, indeed, his whole being, were full to the brim of 
love ! No more study, no more obedience, nor Euclid, nor grammar, 
nor geometry for him I All such useless pursuits were to be thrown 
at once to the winds, and his whole life was henceforth to be devoted 
to the one and sole serious object worth living for, that of folio tving 
to the end of the world this exquisitely beautiful, though half-naked 
maiden belonsing to the gipsy tribe which had bivouacked in the 
pine wood of the island. Nor was the yoong prince over hasty in 
his aviirwal of this wise and noble resolution ; for, when the father 
of the girl came back from the fair laden with sausages and rotten 
cabbage for the savory evening meal, he found the handsome, 
aristocratic-looking young stranger seated cosily side by side with 
his child, and entertaining her imagination with a lively description 
of the pearls and diamonds, the gold and silver with which his mother 
ard his aun's were acenstomed to adorn themselves, and which sho rid 
most assuredly be shared by her, if she would only conBent to let 
him accompany ber over the universe. 

The father was, however, fortunately of a prudent disposition- 
He beheld at once the folly of encouraging any wild fteak of the 
kind, and perceiving, by instinct, that the youth must belong to 
some great family cf the city, resolved to make a virtue of neces- 
sity, and assist in restoring the lad to reason. This resolution was 
soon accomplished. The comrades of the prince, terrified beyond 
expression at his disappearance, had Eought out the tutor and con- 
fessed to him. The island had been searched, and the young delin- 
quent soon found and given up, with tbe most unfeeling cruelty, by 
the gipsy lather, and a few hour s taw the Imperial adventurer snugly 
lodged in his own study, looking jut upon the Neva, in one of the 
finest of the Imperial residences of St. Petersburg. Quiet wss ouk 
wardly restored, hut the tumult of the young heart was no more to 
be quieted'. Love had taught the young prince a lesson of wisdom, 
however. He owned his feelings to no one, but on the lint oppor- 
tunity he again broke loose from all control, and was absent for 
three days, being found and restored by the merest accident. The 
frequent repetition of the same event, in spite of all the watching, 
has induced the Grand Duke, his father, to consent to his travelling 
for a while. And the young gipsy girl, who has been taken undei 
the especial patronage of the Imperial family, after having been 
admitted to the public dancing school of St. Petersburg, is about to 
make her debut in Paris. They say that her ta'ent as a dancer is 
nought, and that, having lost her voice entirely, the angelic strains 
of the pine wood have grown hoarse and unbearable, so that the 
first hope entertained by the Grand Duchess, her especial patroness, 
of her becoming a singer has been disappointed. But while no ex- 
pectation is entertained of her becoming celebrated as a dancer, 
yet so remarkable is her beauty, that her fame has already filled the 
coulisses of the opera, and the greatest curiosity is experienced 
concerning her. Count Orlcff, the most respected judge of female 
beauty in the fashionable world, declares her to be fleifection, but 
is BlroDgly against her appearance so early as in May, according to 
the engagement entered into by the manager of the opera. In 
Paris, although beauty may be certainly a great element of success, 
it is not all— some degree of talent is necessary. 

Meanwhile, what may be. the ultimate intention of the Imperial 
family with regard to this miracle of loveliness, still remains a secret. 
The Russians declare that no Eooner will she have made her debut 
than a llnssian nobleman will fall so desperately in love with her 
that he will lay his name and fortune at her feet, and that he will 
immediately afterwards cany her far away to his castle in Bessa- 
rabia, where she wi'l remain, while the young prince travels every- 
where hut in that direction. The" name .of the nobleman is already 
current among the Russian society cf Paris, the exact amount ol 
his debts known, ard the figure of the Grand Duke's generositv 
ascertained to a fraction. For it is thus, without noise or scandal, 
rendering all parties content and offending none, that these things 
are managed in Eussia. 



EXTRAORDINARY SELF-SACRIFICE BY A CHINESE 

WIDOW. 

A Hoko-Koko paper contains the following pecount by an eyewit- 
ness of a voluntary saciince of life by a disconsolate widow : 

" a few days since I met a Chinese procession passing through 
the foreign settlement, escorting ajoungfema'ein scarlet and gold. 
in a richly decorated chair, the object of which I fonnd was to invite 
the public to come and spe her hang herBelf, a step she had resolved 
to take in consequence of the death of her husband, by which she 
had been left a child'ess widow. Both being orphans, this event had 
fevered her dearest earthly ties, and she hoped by this sacrifice to 
seenre to herself eternal happiness, and a meeting with her husband 
in the next world. 1 repaired on the day appointed to the indicated 
■pot. We bad scarcely arrived when the same procession was seen 
advancing, from the josB-house of the widow's native village towards 
a scaffold and gallows erected in an adjacent field, and surrounded 
by hundreds of natives of holh sexes. The female portion, attired 
in their gayest holiday costume, were very numerous. The proees- 
sion having reached the foot of the scaffold, the lady was assisted 
to ascend by her male attendant, and, after having welcomed the 
crowd, partook with some female relations of a repast prepared 
for her at a table on the scaffold, which she appeared to appreciate 
extremely. A child in arms was then placed upon the table, which 
she caressed and adorned with a necklace which she had worn her- 
self ; she then took an ornamental basket containing rice, herbs and 
flowers, and-, whilst scattering them amongst tbe crowd, delivered a 
shrrt address thanking them for their attendance, and upholding the 
motives which urged her to the step Bhe was about to take. 

" This done, a salute of three bombards announced the arrival of 
the time for the performance of the last act of her existence, when 
a delay was occasioned .by the discovery of the absence of a teluc- 
tant brother, pending whose arrival let me describe the means of 
extermination. 

" 1 he gallows was formed by an upright timber on each side of 
(he scaffold supporting a stout bamboo, from the oentre of which 
was suspended a loop of red cord, with a small wooden ring em- 
bracing hoth parts of it, which was covered bv a red silk handker 
chief, the whole lining being surmonnted by an awning. The mis- 
sing brother having been induced to appear, the. widow now 
proceeded to mount on a chair placed under the noose, and, to 
ascertain ifs fitness for her reception, deliberately placed her head 
in it ; then, withdrawing her head, she waved a final adien to the 
admiring spectators and committed herself to its embraces for the 
last iime, throwing the red handkerchief over her head. Her snp- 
port? were now about to be withdrawn, when she was reminded by 
sevaral voices from the crowd that she had omitted to draw down 
the ring which should tighten the cord round her neck. Smiling an 
acknowledgment of the reminder, she adjusted the ring, and, motion- 
ing sway her supports, was left hanging in mid air— a suicide. With 
dinary self-possession she now placed her hands together 
!..-i her, ard contipned to perform the manual chin-chins until the

HUMOROUS GLEANINGS. 

Yen never hear ono woman Invito another woman out to dinner, any morn

that men's souls flaw open to each other with the tab e-clotb. W ho Is there to 
explain it? It takes several knives and forks to dig Into a man's secret 
nature, whereas the simple key of the tea-caddy will unlock a woman's brea5t 
at any time. 
Thk following unique valentine was received by a lady : 

" soft is the doun on the buttorfle's wing

But softer yet is her crim-on cheek." 
The (fallowing is tbe la'iy's reply :

As soft as smash can be ; 
But softer yet is the silly swain

A good anecdote is related of a well-known vagabond, who was brought 
before a magistrate as a common vagrant. Having suddenly harpoonod a good 
idea, he pulled from a capacious pocket of hi* tattered coat a loaf of broad and 
hall of a dried codfish, and holding them up with a triumphant look and 
posture to tbo magistrate, exclaimed, " You don't ketch him that way I I'm

A woman putting your room to rights — just after you have been arranging 
everything to your satisfaction, and elaborately assorting your papers with 
such methodical care that you could rut your linger npon each separate one in 
the dark— that is what I call chaos. Men aro not more awkward In handling 
women's babies than women are In fingering men's papers. The mischief, 
and damage, and endless annoyanco of Bplrtt, and thorough disturbance of 
temper for the rest of the day that are engendered by the latter practice, sur- 
passes all belief.

confidence in tbe eyesight of our hard-worked and half-blind reader of proofs ; 
for I am ashamed to say that we utterly ruined one poet throngh a ludicrous 
misprint." • 

" fndeod i and what was the unhappy line r" 

" Why, sir, the poet intended to say, 

* See tbo pale martyr in a sheet of tiro ;' 
Instead of which wo made him say, 

1 Seo the pa'o martyr with his shirt on fire.' 
Of course the reviewers made the most of a blunder so entertaining to tbeir 
readers, and tho poor gentleman was never heard of more in the field of 
literature."

restaurants, when they read the subjoined : 

An elderly married 'female, of the name of Pint, and a well-dressed man

excellent mull for ray wife.' feme time affer we sat down to supper, and the 
man insisted on offering us a civet, which was very good. But when, after

The Kino and the Seidlitz Powders. — On 
the first consignment of Seidlitz powders in the 
capital ot Delhi, the monarch became deeply in- 
terested in the accounts of the refreshing-box. A 
box was brought to the King in full Court, and 
the interpreter explained to his Majesty how it 
should be used. Into a goblet he put the 
twelve blue papers, and having added -water the 
King drank it off. This was the alkali, and the 
royal countenance expressed no signs of satis- 
faction. It was then explained that in the com- 
bination of the two powders lay the luxury, and 
the twelve white powders were quickly dis- 
solved, and as eagerly swallowed by his Ma- 
jesty, with a shriek that will be remembered 
while Delhi is numbered among the kingdoms. 
The monarch rose, staggered, exploded, and in 
his full agonies screamed, "Hold me down!" 
then rushing from the throne fell prostrate on 
the floor. There he lay during the long-conti- 
nued effervescence of the compound spirting 
like ten thousand pennyworths of imperial pop, 
and believing himself in the agonies of death — 
a melancholy and humiliating proof that kings 
are mortal. 

The Pope, according to annual custom, which 
has prevailed since the time of Urban V. in 1366, 
went on Sunday last to bless the golden rose, 
which is presented to a female sovereign. It is 
believed that this year the Holy Father will offer 
the rose to the Queen of Naples. 

An attempt was made to get up a cheeT for the 
n _•* as he entered^St. Peter's this week, but it 
if-ovee.' a dead failure. The Royal family of 
V lea S Tere P re9ent a ' the ceremony, and re- 
o Wed an , es P ec ' tt l benediction from the Pope a3 
he passed tW 11 - 

The Pop? at v Q e Consistory held on the 18th 
inst at Rome, is said to have admitted the newly 
appointed French bishops. 

Advxces from Naples announce that the sale 
by auction of the property of the late Prince ot 
Syracuse is to take place unmcdmtely, begin- 
ning with the objects of art. The Ch.oja Palace 
and its beautiful garden were to be put up at 
200,000 ducats (4f. 25c. each), and his villa at 
Sorrento at 100,000 ducats. 

His Royal Highness the Prince of. Wales has 
become a life member of the Cambrian Institute, 
of which Prince L. L. Bonaparte is President; 
and has subscribed twenty pounds to the funds 
ef the Society. 

The news from St. Petersburg is startling. 
1 here had been fears of art insurrection in the 
i-apital. The troops had passed the night under 
arms, and the Palace had been strictly guarded.

335 EMPIRE 335 

SEWING MACHINE. 

Patented Feb. 14, 1860. 

BALESE00M, NO. 335 BROADWAY, 

This Machine Is constructed on an entirely new principle 
of mechanics. It possesses many rare and valuablo im- 
provements — has beon examined by tho most profound 
exports, and pronounced to be SIHVJCtTY AND PERFEC- 
TION COMBINED. 

The following aro tho principal objections urged against 
Sewing Machines : 

1. Excessive tatigue to the operator. 

2. Liability to get out of order. 

3. Expense, trouble and loss oi time in repairing. 

4. Incapacity to sew every description of material 

5. Disagreeable noise while in operation. 

The Empire Sewing Machine 

IS EXIMPT FROM ALL .- HE OBJECTIONS. 

It has a stra ; ght needle, perpendicular mrtion, makes the 
Lock or Shctils Stitch, which will neither Rip nor ravkl, 
and is aliko on both sides ; performs perfect sewing on 
every description of material, from L< a'her to the finest 
Nanaook Muslin, with cotton, linen or silk threi.il, from the 
coarsest to the finest number. 

Having neither Cam nor Cod wniiEi., and ihe least possible 
friction, it runs as smooth as glass, and is 

EMPHATICALLY A NOISELESS MACHINE. 

It require' fif t p.r cent less ]Owfr to drive it than 
any other Machine hi market. A girl of twelve years of 
age can work it steadily, without fatigue or injury to health. 

Its strength' and wo.noerfcl eiMnjoiTT of construction 
render it almost impossible to get out of order, and If 
guaranteed by the Company to give entire satisfaction. 

We respectfully invite all those who may desire to supply 
themselves with a superior article to call and examine tiiis 

UNRIVALLED MACHINE.
